Baked Spam and Pineapple in Teriyaki Sauce
I should really call my blog "lazy cooking". Really.
It doesn't get any lazier than this.
This was what I prepared last night for today's lunch.
I still have leftover fresh sliced pineapple from the tea party, and a can of spam. Throw a little something something, and that could very well be a meal.
I thought of pan frying each element separately on a frying pan...crisp up the spam, caramelize the pineapples and onions, reduce and thicken the "glaze" and stuff...but oh wells, I couldn't be bothered. So, despite the heat, I cranked up my oven and decided to throw everything in and let it cook itself to perfection :D
- 1 large can of spam (I used Tulip brand), cut into sizeable bite sized chunks
- half a pineapple, remove skin and core, cut into bite sized chunks
- half an onion, sliced thinly
- 1 clove of garlic, crushed
- teriyaki sauce, sugar, olive oil
Preheat oven to 200C. Lightly grease baking tray, throw all ingredients in, mix well, bake until the spam pieces are crisp on the outside, and pineapple chunks are caramelized. To bring this to another level, add freshly chopped coriander and chilli as garnish (which I didn't have on hand last nite. Oppps). Consume with a steamy bowl of rice.
Sweet, tangy, juicy pineapple; tasty, hearty, crispy but tender spam...savory garlic and sweet caramelized onion...plus teriyaki sauce? Oh, you knew it was gonna be good ^_^
