As me and my sister were walking around in Bau Wet Market, we were delighted to see this rare delicacy. I am sure not many people knows that pineapple's shoot can be made into a delicious treat. The reason why it is not popular is due to the fact that to make 1 plastic bag of this shoot, you have to sacrifice about 10-15 nos of pineapple's 'tree', and it can be very time consuming. As it was so cheap, it did not take me too long to decide to buy 3 plastic bag of these, which cost RM1 (USD0.30) each.

Pineapple shoot is normally fried with belachan. Here's the recipe;

1 1/2 plastic bag of pineapple shoot
cooking base
half cup of water
cooking oil for sauteing

1. Wash the shoot.
2. Heat up cooking oil in wok.
3. Fry anchovies. Saute garlic and shallot until fragrance.
4. Stir fry the shoot.
5. After 1 minute, put the rest of the cooking base.
6. Add water. Stir another 1 minute.

And that's it. Below is my sister version of cooking with additional button mushroom.

Nyam nyam!! :D
