  1. Combine all relish ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°. In each fish fillet, cut a horizontal slit along one edge to form a pocket (or have your fishmonger do this). Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a small skillet; add green onions, ginger, and garlic and sauté over medium heat until soft. Fill each halibut pocket with 1/4 of the ginger-garlic mixture. Place stuffed fillets in a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  3. Wipe out the skillet and add remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and sesame oil; place over medium heat. Add soy sauce and vinegar; cook for 1 minute. Drizzle over fish.
  4. In a small bowl, mix ground flaxseeds and sesame seeds; sprinkle over fillets. Bake for 10–15 minutes or until fish is flaky and cooked through.
  5. Place steamed spinach on a platter and top with cooked fillets. Serve with pineapple relish.
