I made this last night.   The kids and I really liked it.   I bought agave nectar just for this recipe.  I have never tried it before.   It was good. 

I could not get the fish to brown as it cooked.   Mine looked nothing like the fish in the picture, with the perfectly browned, crispy edges.   Mine was white.   I sprinkled paprika on it to add some color.   It was white with a splash of reddish brown,   I knew it was done and I didn't want to overcook it, so I took it on out.

The kids loved the couscous, said they'd eat it anytime.

DD and I liked the lime juice/agave nectar glaze.   DS didn't use it. 

A keeper.

I used swai.   It must be getting more popular because the price is rising.

And yes, I used a fresh pineapple.
