Pineapple Surprise

Pineapple Surprise

The idea for this came from my trip to Thailand. Pineapple is very common in tropical countries and they eat them both as a snack or added to savory dishes. I found pineapple dishes with seafood both in the north and in the south. An interesting fact about pineapple is that they do not grow in trees but in the ground like all the root vegetables. 


This time I also used cauliflower rice instead of rice and the result was excellent especially since nobody at home realized it was not rice. Way to go!
