      A simple recipe, yet quite an unusual combination of flavours. Grilling the pineapple brings out its natural sweetness. While adding a little chilli to the chocolate adds a pleasant warmth. The sour fresh combination of the minty crème fraiche is the perfect accompaniment to the spicy rich sauce and caramelised pineapple. A favourite BBQ recipe of mine, but one that can be used at any time of year.
    • Mix together the crème fraiche and mint, set aside.
    • In a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water, melt all the butter. Spoon out four tablespoons and reserve for grilling.
    • Add the finely chopped chilli to the bowl and cook in the butter for three minutes until soft. Add the dark chocolate to the bowl and melt gently, do not allow the water to start boiling. Once it starts melting, pour in the cream and heat on a medium heat, stirring regularly. You should end up with a smooth, glossy sauce. Keep warm over a low heat.
    • Coat the pineapple lightly in melted butter and grill on a pan or BBQ until golden on all sides.
    • Serve the pineapple with the warm chocolate chilli sauce and minty crème fraiche.
