Hainanese Fish Maw with Pineapple海南鱼鳔伴凤梨

Believe it my dear friends!    This is my 1st post for year 2015!   I am involving few charity events lately as a way to return to society and help the needy in a small way.  Hope to share my experience on social charitable responsibilities in my future posts.

This dish was prepared in early March 15.  And I promised a friend Patricia to share the recipe!  She must have ran out of patients!  Patricia my sincere apology.   

This is a typical  must have Hainanese dish that my late mother in law used to prepared during all the Chinese festivals!   One of the ingredients she used is the dry pig skin, but instead I subsitute it with fish maw and is taste as good.
