The skin of the pineapple can easily be carved into a bowl to serve the meal of your choice. Fresh pineapple skin is usually thrown away but in countries like Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, it is turned into a bowl. This practice is common at stalls in hawker centers and also restaurants. However, there is always the fear of eateries reusing the pineapple bowls. However, if you make it yourself, you will be assured that it's clean, fresh and definitely more hygienic.
If the crown of the pineapple is still fresh, you can leave it intact with the fruit. I'd removed the crown in the video as it was already dry. Having the crown together surely makes the dish look even more beautiful.
