This idea came from when we were just messing around in the kitchen one night, looking for a garnish to go with something. It worked so well that I had to include it here, and thanks to my chef Chris for this one. I stopped him when he started chopping chillies to go on top of it, though!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 pineapple
100g caster sugar
2 teaspoons ground mixed spice
2 limes
4 scoops vanilla ice cream, to serve

Method

  1. Peel and core the pineapple, and cut it into 12 long wedges. Remove the inner core if it’s tough. Mix together the sugar and mixed spice.
  2. Heat a ridged griddle pan until hot. Sprinkle the spice and sugar mixture over the pineapple pieces, place them on the griddle pan and cook for 2–3 minutes on each side, until charred. Turn them with tongs.
  3. Halve the limes and add them, cut-side down, for the last minute of cooking time.
  4. Serve 3 slices of pineapple and a scoop of ice cream per person, with half a charred lime to squeeze over.
