Remove from heat, set aside on a plate covered loosely with foil and rest for 10 minutes. Spray remaining pineapple lightly with oil and cook in same pan or barbecue for 2-3 minutes each side or until charred.

    • Lamb shoulder or lamb leg (bone-in) would also work well in this recipe.
    • Any leftover lamb can be used in a pita or wrap with salad for a delicious lunch.
    • Kale slaw kits (which include dressing) are available at most supermarkets or use your choice of pre-made coleslaw.
    • Remove seeds from chilli for less heat, if desired.
