Fried Pineapple

Serves: 4
 
1 ripe pineapple
2 tbsp sultana raisins
2 tbsp sugar
1 oz bittersweet chocolate, shaved
2 tbsp unsalted butter
4 sprigs fresh mint

With a sharp knife cut off top half of pineapple, reserving it for another use. Remove rind from the bottom (sweeter) half and slice pineapple into 4 rounds, each ˝ inch thick. Spread sugar on a plate and dredge the pineapple slices in the sugar.
 
In a large frying pan melt butter over high heat until foaming. Add the dredged pineapple slices and fry for 2 minutes. Flip the slices and spread raisins around them; fry for another 2 to 3 minutes until pineapple has browned and rains are swollen. Remove from heat and transfer one pineapple slice to each of 4 dessert plates, flipping them so the more attractively browned side faces upward. Spoon some raisins onto each plate and top with a bit of the sauce from the pan. Garnish with chocolate shavings and mint. Serve immediately.
