A grilled slice of pineapple, served with yoghurt and a slice of lime

Ingredients

  • 1 pineapple (or 1 tin of pineapple slices, in juice)
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 4 teaspoons desiccated coconut
  • 4 tablespoons zero-fat Greek-style yoghurt (optional)

Method

  1. Cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple, then remove the peel. Cut into 4 thick slices, and remove the core of each with a small knife.

    Information:

    Fresh pineapple is ideal for this dish but it works with tinned pineapple slices too. Allow 2 slices per person. You can also use ready-prepared fresh pineapple pieces, threaded on skewers.

  2. Barbecue for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

    Information:

    You can cook these in a griddle pan on the hob or under a grill set on a high heat, too.

  3. Serve each slice sprinkled with coconut and with a wedge of lime on the side. Add a spoonful of yoghurt if you like.

    Information:

    Try this with other fruits – barbecued mangoes, peaches, strawberries and bananas are all delicious!
