Grilled Pineapple with Basil & Mint

Ingredients

• 1 medium pineapple
• 2 tbsps brown sugar
• 2 tbsps unsalted butter, softened
• 1 tbsp dark rum
• Handful fresh mint, finely sliced
• 10 fresh basil leaves, finely sliced
• 1 tsp mixed spice
• Vanilla ice cream to serve

Serves 2

Prep time 15 mins

Cooking time 20 mins

 

Method

1. Cut the tops off the pineapples and set aside some of the leaves for garnishing later. Carefully peel of the skin with a serrated knife and cut off the bottoms. Slice into 4, 1 inch thick circles, then with an apple corer remove the core of each round of pineapple.
2. Together place the brown sugar, butter, mint, basil and mixed spice into a small saucepan and melt together. Bring to the boil for 1-3 mins or until syrupy then set aside.
3. Heat a griddle until it gets so hot it begins to smoke. With a pastry brush, brush a thin layer of the sauce onto each piece of pineapple and griddle in 2 batches for 4-5 mins on each side or until the pineapple rings are slightly charred.
4. Serve 2 rings per person with a drizzle of the hot fudgey sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
