  • Heat barbecue for indirect grilling: Light one side of barbecue, leaving other side unlit. Close lid; heat barbecue to 375ºF.
  • Blend first 4 ingredients in blender until smooth. Press through fine-mesh strainer into 13x9-inch dish. Add fish; spoon dressing mixture over, and into, fish cavity to evenly coat fish.

  • Place packet on grate over unlit area; cover. Grill 30 to 35 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork, monitoring for consistent temperature and turning packet after 15 min. Meanwhile, chop remaining pineapple.
