1/2 fresh ripe pineapple
3/4 c. Superior Dark Soy Sauce (or tamari for GF,or regular but booo regular)
1 t. brown sugar
1 t. mirin (rice wine)
1 t. sesame oil
Slice the pineapple into plankettes or half plankettes (both shown). It doesn't really matter what size, as long as they're flattish.The half pineapple should make 4 plankettes or 8 half p's.
|P's and half p's.|
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a Ziploc and let marinate for 30-60 mins.
|Squish it around a little|
Heat a grill pan or nonstick pan on medium and spray with cooking spray- pref. grapeseed. When hot enough to sizzle, throw your pineapples on and grill until tender; flipping multiple times throughtout to caramelize the outside. You'll know they're tender when your grab them with tongs and they flop over like a- well.... nevermind. Don't use superhigh heat- sadly then the sesame oil from the marinade will burn, since it has loooow smokepoint. Just be patient with the medium ;)
|Use a nonstick if you don't have grillpan|
Serve atop white rice, or add to a stir fry at the end. Or just eat as is. Lol. The combo of sweet, salty, and savory is really awesome in this recipe. Try it!!!! You know ya want to.
