Still trying to hold on to summer vibes? Right! Me too. Pineapple always does it for me. They’re sweet and tropical and remind me of somebody’s beach. So, I figured let’s use them as a condiments over some perfectly fried seafood. Great for a quick lunch, a girls’ night, or a Friday evening! You have to give it a try.
