How to Make Pineapple with Papaya Sauce

  • Peel the pineapple and take spiral slices off the outside to remove the eyes.
  • Cut in crossways into 6 slices, each 1 inch thick.
  • Line a baking sheet with a sheet of foil, rolling up the sides to make a rim.
  • Grease the foil with melted butter. Preheat the grill.
  • Arrange the pineapple slices on the baking sheet.
  • Brush with butter, then top with the ginger matchsticks, sugar and cinnamon.
  • Drizzle over the stem ginger syrup.
  • Grill for 5 to 7 minutes or until the slices are golden and lightly charred on the surface.
  • Meanwhile, make the sauce. Cut a few slices from the papaya and get aside, then puree the rest with the apple juice in a blender or food processor.
  • Press the puree through a sieve (strainer) placed over a bowl, then stir in any juices from cooking the pineapple.
  • Serve the pineapple slices with a little sauce drizzled around each plate.
  • Decorate with the reserved papaya slices and the mint sprigs.
