It is summertime and although we are in the middle of a pandemic , we still can do our best to make the most of our social distancing summer evenings. This recipe will put you in a tropical mood, as you get to eat your dinner out of a pineapple bowl. The idea for this recipe came about while planning one of my friends birthday parties. One of the theme nights was “Luau” and I had always seen these pineapple bowls and wanted to try it. I made salmon and a seafood rice and it was a hit! I knew that I had to make this a blog recipe for the Glam Kitchen Gang because it looks fancy and is full of flavor. As always let me know what you think and enjoy !!
