WOK CARAMELIZED PINEAPPLE  with ice cream

ACTIVE TIME: 10 MINUTES, START TO FINISH: 10 MINUTES 

SERVES 4


The dramatic presentation of this dish is the perfect pickup after a long, leisurely meal. Caramelizing the pineapple with rum and sugar builds great flavor into the fresh fruit. It's both easy and elegant.



1     pineapple, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2     cup rum
4     teaspooons granulated sugar
2     teaspoons clarified butter
premium vanilla ice cream
peanuts for garnish
1     sprig mint
TO FLAME PINEAPPLE:
Warm pineapple pieces in a hot wok over medium- high heat. When warm, remove from heat and add rum. Holding the pan away from you, carefully light with a long matchstick. Use caution as igniting the pan will produce flames. Once the alcohol has burned off, return the pan to heat and add butter and sugar until dissolved. Toss pineapple with mixture to coat.

TO  ASSEMBLE:
Arrange pineapple in a triangle on plate and garnish with extra sauce. Place a scoop of ice cream in the center of plate, top with peanuts and garnish with mint.















Clue: 

A quarter of a whole pineapple is enough for one person; slice that quarter into three even parts.
