Coat grill with cooking spray. Preheat grill.
Place zest, lime juice, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of ginger, salt and cayenne pepper in a resealable plastic bag; shake to combine and add fish to bag. Reseal, place on a plate and allow to marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes, turning once.
Meanwhile, in a second plastic bag, place remaining brown sugar, remaining ginger and pineapple. Allow to marinate for 5 minutes; remove pineapple and add resulting juices to fish.
Grill pineapple until heated through, turning once, about 8 minutes. Remove to a serving platter; cover with foil to keep warm.
Cook fish, brushing with marinade, over direct heat until cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place on serving platter with pineapple. Yields about 1 fillet plus 1/2 cup of pineapple per serving.
