For delicious this side dish you don’t need to spend a lot of time. It’s easy and fast to prepare. Fits perfectly with other pacific islands chicken or fish recipes. Posted for ZWT7. For a Tex-Mex version don't use sesame oil and soya sauce and replace some salt and some drops tabasco if desired. Thanks!

I really enjoyed pineapple cooked this way. I used a Maui Gold pineapple. The grated ginger appears on the ingredient list twice and I couldn't figure out what should have been there so I used 1 Tblsp. of grated ginger and 2 tsp. of crystalized ginger. I broiled it 6 inches from the heat source for 5 minutes and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Pacific Islands.
- 1 pineapple, fresh, peeled, cored and cut in small pieces
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce, clear
- 2 tablespoons vegetal oil
- 1 red bell pepper, peeled and sliced (optional)
- 1 sweet onion, peeled and sliced (optional)
- 1 -2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1 tablespoon cilantro
- 1 -2 tablespoon brown sugar (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Stir in a big bowl all the ingredients until ginger together.-.
- Transfer in a flat baking mold in order to have only one layer pineapple crunches.
- Top with sugar.
- Broil until pineapple is caramelized.
- Top with remaining fresh cilantro and serve hot or chilled.
- Note: I’ve never tried this recipe with canned pineapple and canned roasted peppers. I suppose that this would work as well too. In any case I’m sure that the fresh ones are better! If you try, please let me know!
