The charred flavours of black lava sea salt work perfectly with sweet, tropical pineapple. We’ve caramelised slices of pineapple and garnished them with salt and pepper – not your standard seasonings but black lava sea salt and red aleppo pepper.

Cut the slices into segments for an elegant canapé or serve whole as an accompaniment to grilled prawns, roast pork or gammon.
