"Parti Nanas Anda" - A Tale of Pineapple Mishap

Salam all! Haha.. *Coughs.. The Malay title is taken from a friend of mine - Shafiq Azid. Why? Well, there's no actual reasons; but he seems to be in love with pineapples or "nanas"(his current profile photo on Facebook is a pineapple).

Anyway, I tried to create a pineapple-based dish but it turned into a quasi-disaster - the sauce!! It was too sweeettttt *sighs. Anyway, I think I got a solution for it but i haven't done it. So, why don't we all try it together later? (I'm talking about the "less-sweetened" one - is there such word?).

Nevermind that, these are what we need: Pineapple Juice, Tangerine (this is 'asam jawa' right?), Honey, Prawns, Squids, Onions, Capsicums, Black Pepper Sauce, Black Pepper, BBQ Sauce, Margarine, Salt, Broccoli, Cheddar Cheese, Bread Crumbs, Mayonnaise.

First, grill some squids which had been marinated with pineapple juice, tangerine, honey and salt (marinate them for half a day).

Then, grill some prawns. just sprinkle some salt and pepper on the prawns. Put the squids and the prawns aside.

Now comes the disaster part - the sauce. Previously, I put some pineapple juice, black pepper, black pepper sauce, BBQ sauce, capsicums, salts, AND CRUSHED PINEAPPLE (gatai sgt tudia laa). Yup, the mistake was that I put crushed pineapple slices which are as SWEET as HELL. So, we should just leave the crushed pineapple because it will ruin the taste. Put the sauce aside.

Okay, we're now making the side dish and let me tell you this; I lovee it - Broccoli Cheese Bites! I got the idea of using broccoli from my mom and went through some cooking websites to get this one but I can't seem to remember the name. Anyway, first, put some broccoli in boiling water for about 5 minutes.

In a pan, melt some cheddar cheese(or any cheese you prefer).

Then, coat the broccoli with the melted cheese and roll them in bread crumbs. The broccoli should now be covered in cheese and breadcrumbs. After a 2 or 3 minutes, deep-fry your Broccoli Cheese Bites.

Tadadaaa~ Seafood Pineapple Sweet Sauce with Broccoli Cheese Bites.. And i'm posing in my 'metal pose' which i think is cool even though Suhaibmon is saying I don't look cool with it.

Haha, En.Ciput is enjoying it.

Looks can be deceiving. Even though the sauce was QUASI-disastrous, if you arrange your meal properly, this is what happens.

Try it!! Especially the Broccoli Cheese Bites!!! :D
