Think you know pineapple? Think again. You haven’t truly experienced it until it’s been warmed through and caramelized to bring out all of its juicy sweetness. And when you toss it into a taco with some gently spiced pieces of catfish and a crispy slaw, everything you think is true about the fruit is suddenly flipped on its head as you venture into savory dinnertime territory.
