The Zebratarian Kitchen is celebrating its first birthday today. What better way to celebrate than with this Vitamin C rich, succulent pineapple dish in a hot, tangy marinade.

It makes an excellent summery side, accompanying BBQ food such as (Quorn) chicken fillets, corn on the cob, veggie kebabs, home made guacamole, potato salad, tacos and quesadillas.

Ingredients:

  • Fry light (for cooking)
  • 500g Pineapple

There are 2 methods of grilling the pineapple, depending on what resources you have…

  1. GRIDDLE PAN
  • Griddle pan 5-6 sprays of fry light
  • Turn hob on high 7/8

  • Cook for 10 minutes turning every so often.
  • Garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and serve.

Using a griddle pan allows the pineapple bubble in it’s juice for a bit intensifying the flavour.

  1. OVEN GRILL
  • Pre heat oven to 220
  • Lay foil in base of tray, place pineapple on grill and pour the marinade over the top.
  • Squirt grill tray with 5-6 sprays of fry light.

  • Grill for 15 mins, flipping them over halfway through.
  • Give them a generous squirt of fry light and flip again for 5 more minutes.

Using the oven grill produces a slightly drier finish with a nice charred flavour.

Making the recipe more accessible:

  • Purchase pre chopped fruit, as I have.
  • If you live with chronic fatigue, you can pace by preparing the marinade the day before.
  • Daily living and mobility aids used to prepare this recipe: chopping aids, hand splints and a wheelchair.
