  • STEP 1

    Cut the pineapple into quarters with the tops still left on. Grill them on a hot barbecue for 2-3 mins on each cut side or until you see grill marks.

  • STEP 2

    While the pineapple grills, combine all the other ingredients, apart from the lime juice. Season with half a teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper and a large pinch of sea salt. Once the pineapple comes off the grill, brush with the lime juice and scatter over the coriander seasoning. Eat hot or cold.
