  • 1/2 tbsp of sugar
Remove from the grill and leave to cool. Then, thread the pineapple chunks onto skewers and set aside
For the lime crème fraîche, add half a tablespoon of sugar to a pan along with half a tablespoon of water. Grate in the lime zest and bring to the boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves
  • 1/2 tbsp of sugar
