1 quantity pizza base, rolled and cut into rounds to fit into small pastry tins, greased lightly
125g boneless fish fillets (eg ocean parch) steamed and flaked; ½ - ¾ cup cooked brown rice; ½ cup chopped fresh pineapple; 2 tblspn chopped and toasted cashews or almonds; ½ cup pineapple sauce

Lightly bake bases for 5 – 10 minutes.
Combine all ingredients for filling in a bowl, except sauce. Spoon filling into pastry cases.
Heat ingredients for sauce in a pan and stir till thickened. Pour over 1 – 2 teaspoons of sauces, just enough to flavour and combine ingredients.
Bake in a moderate oven for 10 minutes until heated through.
Serve with a parsley and cress garnish.
I used caged parsley as garnish – caged parsley is what you grow when you have lots of rabbits living in your yard!
