The most common way to eat a pineapple is as a plain cut-up fruit. Pineapple is sweet, juicy and refreshing and tastes wonderful as it is. However, if you are craving something different, trying this new way of serving pineapple – the pan-fried pineapple.
The pineapple chunks are simply fried on a non-stick frying pan. No extra seasoning is needed since the pineapple itself is so full of flavor. The sugar in pineapple caramelizes as it cooks, giving it a brownish color and bringing out a unique caramelized taste. Pan-fried pineapple is sweet, sour and savory at the same time – what a burst of flavor!
Pan-fried pineapple is great served warm, right after it is cooked. It can also be refrigerated and re-warmed in a microwave to be served later. Pan-fried pineapple is great as a side dish accompaniment to chicken breast, pork or fish.
