Streaky Bacon Fried Rice With Tangy Pineapple

I have half a pineapple left in the fridge after making the mango & pineapple pie. Not knowing what to do with it, and after some thoughts, I said, hey why not fried rice with some streaky bacon with the tangy pineapple....if it had been sweet, honey sweet there won't be any left after the pie :P

I wanted to fry with some tom yam paste but decided not to coz we already had too much of hot spicy stuff the last few days. You can consider this as a one dish meal...tasty and easy to prepare for working people like me :))) The tangy pineapple and cajun spice added extra flavor to the Streaky Bacon Fried Rice...yummilicious and appetizing !

First, I fried the streaky bacon till fragrant( keep the oil for frying the rice later), chopped them up into bits sizes, cut up some red capsicum and diced them into small cubes. Chopped up some garlic. Scooped out the pineapple flesh and cut into small bits. Keep the pineapple shell for storing the fried rice later, if you like to be a little more creative :)))

Next step , sauteed the garlic in a wok with the bacon oil till fragrant. Add in streaky bacon bits, diced red capsicum and stir fry till well mixed. Add in the rice and stir fry till all the ingredients are well mixed. Push the rice aside, add in an egg and push back the rice and cover the egg for a second then toss the rice together with the egg till the egg is cooked and in shreds. Throw in some black raisins if you like . Add 1 heaped teaspoon of salt ( to taste) and 2 teaspoon of cajun spice and a dash of pepper to the fried rice. Tossed the rice till well mixed and dish out the fried rice into the pineapple shell .

  3. Very unique way to use the bacon! I've never combined bacon and pineapple, but the tart combined with salty and savory flavors sound delicious together!

  4. Hi Sophie :)

    Thanks for dropping by. Bacon goes well with the pineapple. Haha I am very adventurous when it comes to matching ingredients together :)))

  5. I'm making this for dinner tonight. I think I'll try to shoot it, but I don't think it will be as pretty as your picture!
