How to Make Fried Pineapple

  • Using a sharp knife, cut the top of the pineapple and peel off the skin, taking care to remove the eyes.
  • Cut the pineapple in half and remove and discard the woody core.
  • Cut the flesh lengthwise into 1 cm wedges.
  • Heat the butter in a large heavy frying pan or wok.
  • When it is melted, add the pineapple wedges and cook over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until they have turned pale golden in colour.
  • Meanwhile, dry fry the desiccated coconut in a small frying pan until lightly browned.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
  • Sprinkle the soft light brown sugar into the pan with the pineapple, add the lime juice and cook, stirring constantly until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Divide the pineapple wedges among four bowls, sprinkle with the coconut, decorate with the lime slices and serve with the yoghurt.
