I love pineapple. It’s sweet, juicy, and acidic. When I buy a pineapple, it’s usually intended for a a variation on Hawaiian pizza. Then I am left eating the rest of the pineapple for a few days afterward. Pineapple by itself is delicious, but I wanted a way to jazz it up, give it a feature role in a dish, make it a star!

I searched through my fridge and found some rice, and brilliance hit me: fried rice! Fried rice is a perfect way to use up leftovers. This was a great side dish and could easily be made a main dish if you tossed in some shrimp (or dare I say Spam). Pineapple, welcome to the limelight.
