  1. Spray pineapple slices with cooking spray and grill or pan brown, lightly brush both sides with hoisin sauce. Cut rings into bite size pieces about 1 inch wide (just big enough for the meatballs to sit on top of).
  2. Prepare a medium skillet with pan spray and brown al fresco all natural Teriyaki Meat Balls over medium high heat on both sides. Add water, cover and fully heat meatballs.
  3. Skewer meatballs on top of pineapple and lightly brush with the hoisin sauce to give a glaze.
  4. Set-up on a platter, and put remaining hoisin sauce in a small dipping bowl. Garnish with fresh mint. Serve immediately.

Good luck finding the Al Fresco brand meatballs. I went to 6 grocery stores to try and find them. I ended up creating my own mealballs and they turned out ok, but it was more stress than I needed for a New Years party.


My pineapple wasn't fantastic, but that's what I get for trying to make this in September. Overall, it was a decent dish, but I think I'd prefer it with regular meatballs. There's definitely a bit of an aftertaste with the al fresco, to me. They do look pretty, though! :)


YUM! I was unable to find the teriyaki ginger chicken meatballs so I used al fresco tomato & basil chicken meatballs. I heated them in the microwave as they are already cooked, then brushed with warm teriyaki sauce. When placed on the pineapple chunks, they dripped down. Served with teriyaki sauce for dipping, they were YUMMY! Both Hubby and I give these two thumbs up!! Thank you al fresco All Natural for such a yummy recipe!
