Pineapple Shrimp & Fried Rice

I love Asian cooking. I love Shrimp and I really love Pineapple, so it's safe to say I love making this dish and I've convinced myself somehow that this dish loves me back. When I make this particular dish, I like to gut my pineapple and use both the juice and flesh in my recipe but also use the hollowed out shells as bowls. It just adds an extra flare to the meal. This recipes is a marriage of so many beautiful flavors that will have you most definitely getting seconds. So I hope you try and of course enjoy it.
