Grilled Ribs with Pineapple and Mandarin Orange Peel
Sally Shi-Po POON, Hong Kong Nutrition Association and registered dietitian (UK) said, "The natural sweet flavour coming from pineapple can reduce the use of sugar or honey in cooking. When buying ribs, choose the lean ones. Trim away animal fat before cooking to reduce intake of saturated fat. Grilling is a low-fat cooking method which can reduce the amount of cooking oil to be used."
