Passed weekend I had girlfriend visit from Gothenburg … and it was time for some serious cooking.
One evening I did Barbara’s Roasted Putanesca Chicken - and as dessert I served this fresh and spicy dessert. My friend she doesn’t like pineapple, so I used fresh nectarines for her and it worked very well.
Fresh Pineapple with Spicy Mint Sugar, serves 4
½ fresh pineapple
50 fresh mint leafs
60ml (4tbsp) sugar
20ml (4tsp) chili flakes
vanilla ice cream
1. Cut the peel of the pineapple and cut it into 4 pieces – remove the stalk – and cut the fruit meat into thin slices and divide between 4 serving dishes.
2. Cross the fresh mint leafs with the sugar in a mortar until the sugar is deep green and the leafs is dissolved into the sugar. Mix in the chili flakes.
3. Sprinkle the pineapple with the mixture and top with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream.
And you have a flavorful and exciting dessert very quickly.
