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!
- 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)
- 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!
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!
