Loved this dish! I also found a recipe for pineapple fried rice that I made along with it. We added shrimp and mushrooms and left out the cherry tomatoes. I would cut the sugar at least in half. We used fresh pineapple so it was almost too sweet with the 1/4 cup.

Yes, I would make this again. It was easy and had great flavor. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I chopped a slicing tomato.

We use shrimp instead of scallops and omit the green pepper and mustard. My husband is always thrilled when I make this dish!

I made this recipe when I got my magazine. After I cut it out I can't find it. It was easy and wonderful. Thank you for putting out such a great magazine.
