Swordfish Tacos w pineapple salsa

Tonight, we wanted to try something different 
and had swordfish left over so I decided to make
 fish tacos with pineapple salsa. 

I was worried it 
might be too sweet but it wasn’t at all! I got the 
recipe for the salsa here (I did not use the rice 
vinegar as it was tart enough). It was nice change 
and perfect for the hot weather. 

Layer the taco's
shred cabbage
pineapple salsa
and sprinkle w cheese
