Cut the top and base off the pineapple. Hold the pineapple firmly, resting it on the cut base. Slice off the skin, working from top to bottom, removing any brown ‘eyes’. Halve lengthways, remove the tough central core using an apple corer and cut into thin slices. Arrange on a large serving platter.
Mix together the honey, lime juice and black pepper in a small bowl and drizzle over the pineapple. Scatter over the basil and serve immediately.
