    1 medium fresh pineapple, skinned and sliced in 1cm slices

    200ml cold water

    250g granulated sugar

    1 tsp finely chopped chilli

    2 tsp salted butter

    A pinch of coarse ground black pepper

    Aldi Vanilla Fromage Frais


    Place the slices of pineapple onto a chopping board.

    Then, using a small pastry cutter or knife, remove the tough centre core of the slice.

    Place the water, chilli and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to the boil, cook for 1 minute.

    Remove from the stove and leave to infuse and cool.

    Place a large non-stick frying pan on the stove and melt the butter to the point where it starts foaming and is about to turn light brown.

    Dust the pineapple with a little black pepper.

    Pop the seasoned pineapple slices into the pan and brown them on both sides, this should only take a few minutes.

    Once the pineapples are slightly brown add the chilli syrup and bring to the boil.

    The butter will slightly thicken the syrup.

    Cook for 1 minute to warm through.

    Then carefully spoon onto warm plates or bowls.

    Add a little syrup and top with a large spoon of Aldi Vanilla Fromage Frais.
