Caramelised Paprika Pineapple

Caramalised Paprika Pineapple

 

When does a “set of instructions to make food” become a recipe?Β  Is it as soon as you have a set quantity for each ingredient or is it always considered a recipe? hmm… See I learnt to cook from my mum, and like any Indian cook I’ve seen, cooking is more about adding & testing ingredients whilst you taste.Β  So of course, it’s really hard to write a food blog post, when you don’t know exactly how it started in the first place lol

Anyway, enough of my ramblings πŸ˜› Caramelised Paprika Pineapple.. just the word caramelised can make one drool right? I mean nothing bad has ever come out of caramelising anything.. as far as I know anyway πŸ˜› This “recipe” actually came about from a food photo I did (linked below), that included the caramelised paprika pineapple in a chicken fajita – foregoing the usual onion/pepper mix that you find with fajitas.

 

After a few comments, and messages, on instagram & facebook, it seemed that people liked the pineapple – so this post is for you guys! Well, and me so I don’t forget what I actually did lol

The ingredients list is what I actually used – you can increase and decrease the amount as you see fit.Β  You can even change it up, and use fresh pineapple – I used canned in juice pineapple cos that’s all I had at the time – and like all “mum chefs” I improvise A LOT cos frankly dragging 2 kids to the shops to get 1 item is rather low on my list of “fun” things to do πŸ˜€Β  If I wasn’t cooking it for the kids, I’d probably use chilli powder or HOT paprika, instead of regular smoked paprika.

If you do make it for the summer bbq/braai season, it can even be made on the hotplate πŸ™‚Β  Just be realllllly careful when picking it up, cos it’s HOT! Don’t try and taste test straight after cooking either

If you do make the Caramelised Paprika Pineapple – feel free to tag me in on a photo. Love to hear from you πŸ™‚

Instructions
  1. Prep pineapple by removing from can/juice & placing each ring on a flat plate or piece of baking paper.
  2. Sprinkle both sides of each pineapple with the white sugar.
  3. Melt butter in a non stick pan, until frothy (careful not to burn). Medium heat is probably best.
  4. Once the butter is frothy, place the pineapple rings into the pan & leave for 4-5 mins before flipping onto other side. You'll know it's time to flip the ring, when you can see the outside of the pineapple ring turn brown.
  5. Once both sides of the pineapple ring are brown, remove from heat.
  6. Cut into pieces (if smaller pieces are required).
  7. Sprinkle paprika onto pineapple & toss until all pieces are covered.
