Fish Fillet in Pineapple Honey Sauce

This recipe of mine is a variation of the usual sweet and sour dish.
I used crushed pineapple and honey which gave a nice flavor and thickness for the sauce.
You can use any fish of your choice. I recommend Cream Dory fish since it is readily available in supermarket (fresh or frozen) and is very much affordable.
This dish tasted good! I hope you'll like it,too!
