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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir in a big bowl all the ingredients until ginger together.-.
  2. Transfer in a flat baking mold in order to have only one layer pineapple crunches.
  3. Top with sugar.
  4. Broil until pineapple is caramelized.
  5. Top with remaining fresh cilantro and serve hot or chilled.
  6. 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!

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.

What a lovely way to treat a pineapple. I used a Maui Gold pineapple, we really enjoyed the pineapple prepared this way Awalde. I made both versions, Asian for myself and Tex-Mex for the dh. Both were wonderful. Quick, easy to make with a great flavor profile. Made exactly as written, wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for sharing a recipe that we will enjoy again and again.

This was quick and yummy. It was made for ZWT8 - Mexico, but the sesame oil and soysauce rendered it definitely Asian or Pacific Rim. Regardless, it was very good. I made it in the toaster oven on "broil" and it came out nicely caramelized. I've attached a photo, but it was taken right before we sat down to eat. I realized after taking it that the cilantro was missing so we added it. However, food was getting cold so we didn't take another photo. Sorry! This recipe is defintely a keeper. Thanks, Awalde!
