“This is a thai dish with a lot of the flavor coming from the pineapple and coconut. I prefer to use thai jasmine rice but you can use regular white rice too. I used a can of pineapples instead of a fresh one since that was what I had on hand. Be sure to make just what you need, I couldn't stop picking at the leftovers!”
