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;

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

Method:
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
