Sweet and Sour Spiced Pineapple and Mango

cook 20 mins
  • 1 firm, ripe mango
  • 1 small pineapple, sliced in half lengthways and then into thin wedges
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar, plus extra to serve
  • 1/2 long red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons palm sugar or soft light brown sugar
  • 1–2 tablespoons finely shredded mint
  • Heat a ridged griddle pan over a medium-high heat.
  • Cut 2 sides from the mango, using the stone as a guide and cutting either side of it. Sift icing sugar all over the cut sides of the mango and pineapple so they are well covered.
  • Lay the mango, cut side down, and pineapple on the hot pan and griddle for 2 minutes, twisting the pieces once so that a charred criss-cross pattern appears on the fruit. Turn the pineapple wedges over and repeat on the other side. This may need to be done in 2 batches.
  • Meanwhile, make the sweet and sour dressing. Put the chilli, lime juice, sugar and mint in a small bowl, then stir until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  • Remove the fruits from the griddle pan and arrange on serving plates. Drizzle over the sweet and sour dressing and serve dusted with extra icing sugar, if liked.
