Pork works well with most fruit, and we've added a curry dressing for a touch of spice. Leftover ham (from Christmas, say) would work well in place of the pork.

Ingredients

  • 2 pork fillets (500gm each), at room temperature
  • 1 pineapple, core removed, cut into wedges
  • 2 golden shallots, thinly sliced on a mandoline
Curry vinaigrette
  • 125 ml (½ cup) coconut milk
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) lime juice
  • 30 gm ginger (about 6cm), grated
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1½ tbsp grated light palm sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, stems removed, finely chopped
  • 2½ tsp curry powder

Method

Main
  • 1
    Heat a barbecue to medium-high. Drizzle pork and pineapple with oil and season to taste. Grill pork with the hood down, turning occasionally, until cooked to your liking (8-10 minutes for medium). Meanwhile, grill pineapple (1-2 minutes each side; or cook pork and pineapple in a char-grill pan over medium heat, turning occasionally, for 15-18 minutes and 1-2 minutes respectively.) Cover pork with foil to rest (4-5 minutes).
  • 2
    For curry vinaigrette, process ingredients in a blender until smooth and season to taste.
  • 3
    Slice pork and arrange on a platter with pineapple, top with herbs, shallot and vinaigrette to taste, and serve with rice and lime wedges.
