  1. Reserve 2 tbsp of the onion for the salsa. Heat the oil in a saucepan and cook the remaining onion and half the pepper for 4 mins or until softened and coloured. Stir in the rice, then pour in the stock. Add the kidney beans and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, stir once, cover the pan, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cook for 15 mins until the rice is tender and the liquid absorbed.

  2. Dust the turkey steaks with the Cajun spice and griddle or fry in a non-stick pan for about 4-6 mins on each side until cooked through. Cut the pineapple into small pieces and mix together with the reserved red onion, pepper, green chilli and lime juice. Spoon some salsa over each steak and serve with the rice.

Really delicious evening meal! Worth making the salsa ! I also added a can of sweetcorn to the rice at the end - it brightened the whole dish up! x

Lovely easy meal-we had ours with quinoa instead of rice as my other half isn't keen. We both REALLY enjoyed this!

Children were a bit sceptical about the pineapple with a savoury dish, but one mouthful and everyone was hooked! Fantastic and fairly quick and easy too.
