Grilled pineapple with lime and bourbon
- 1 medium pineapple
- 100g butter
- 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
- zest and juice of 2 limes
- 2 tbsp palm sugar or soft brown sugar
- 2 tbsp bourbon or rum
Step by step
Make the syrup up to 1 hour ahead.
Slice the top and bottom from the pineapple, then cut the flesh into vertical quarters. Peel each quarter and remove the core, then slice lengthways. Preheat the grill to high.
Melt the butter in a small pan and add the chilli, lime zest and juice, sugar and bourbon or rum. Bubble together for a few minutes.
Arrange the pineapple on baking sheets; brush with some of the syrup, then grill for 2-3 minutes. Turn the slices and brush with more syrup; grill for 2-3 minutes more. Serve with the syrup and some yogurt on the side.
