MAKING CARBS COUNT

Method

1. Trim the pineapple, removing all outer

skin, then cut into quarters, remove the

core and place in a shallow container. Mix

all the other ingredients in a bowl, ensuring

the honey is dissolved in the liquid. Pour

over the pineapple and leave to marinate

in a cool place for up to 2 hours; if not fully

submerged, rotate it a few times during

the marinating.

2. About 20 minutes before the pineapple

is ready, start the robata grill (home

barbecue or your oven grill). If using the

robata for other dishes beforehand, make

sure you scrub the wire rack with a wire

brush so as not to get any meat or fish

flavours on to the pineapple.

3. Remove the pineapple from its

marinade and place it on the wire rack.

Grill for a few minutes on each of the three

sides, then rotate. When all pieces are

sealed, start basting the pineapple in the

leftover marinade. This dish will take up

to 20 minutes to cook to soft, repeatedly

re-basting with the marinade to build up

a golden caramelization. You will need

to work fast to ensure the fruit does not

burn - use sake-mirin spray to control any

flare-ups. Serve immediately on a shiso

leaf with a little of the leftover marinade.

Sake-Mirin spray

Says chef Silla Bjerrum, This is an oldschool classic, served to the Courts

across Europe through the centuries.

In this recipe it is given an Asian twist.

Bincho charcoal creates less dust than

conventional barbecue coals, and I like

to use a sake-mirin spray to control the

flames and add moisture and flavour to

the food, particularly to protein-based

dishes which have not been marinated.

It also builds up the sweetness and

crispiness of the food. I use a simple

recipe of 100ml each of cooking sake and

mirin, and 300ml water in a food spray

bottle.
