Simple Fruit Salad in Fresh Pineapple shell is something that I have wanted to ‘experience’ for a very long time. What a lovely way to eat a simple fruit salad, right out of a pineapple shell.

Keep on Dreaming

I must be dreaming because here in Northern WI, we just got literally dumped on. With snow that is. Ten inches of the white, heavy stuff. On top of that, it’s been raining off and on. “So what we have here, is a failure to communicate.” I might as well go on dreaming because I don’t think we’ll be sitting outside anytime soon.

Super Simple

Cut off the top section of the pineapple. Cut the pineapple in half, vertically. After removing most of the pineapple, simply lay your piece of fish or shrimp in the pineapple shell, season with lemon pepper or your favorite seafood seasoning, drizzle fish with lemon juice and cover with foil.
