Method

  1. Peel the pears and cut into quarters, then remove the cores. Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat. Add the butter and when it starts to foam, add the chilli and ginger. Stir well to combine, then add the pear quarters.
  2. Cook for 1-2 mins on each side or until tender and lightly golden. Serve with some crème fraîche or yogurt, if you like.
