Grilled Pineapple with Star Anise and Chilli
- 1 Heat a ridged griddle plate. Brush the pineapple slices with oil and then place on the grill, mark criss-cross lines on both sides of the pineapple. Place the slices, overlapping, on a large tray and pour over the Star Anise syrup. Serve hot or cold with a scoop of vanilla or coconut ice cream.
- 2 Combine the sugar, spices and water in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for five minutes, then leave to cool.
- 3 Meanwhile peel the pineapple, quarter it and then cut away the core. Slice each segment lengthways into five long thin strips cut towards the centre.
