  1. First, make the salsa. Mix together all of the ingredients (use 1⁄2 a chilli for a milder flavour, all of it for a pungent one). Set aside while you cook the gammon.

  2. Heat the grill for 3 mins. Use a thin-bladed knife to slice the gammon into 2 steaks, then snip the rind every 2-3cm. Lightly brush with oil. Grill for about 3 mins each side until just firm, then brush over the honey on one side and cook for 1 min more. Remove and leave to stand for 2-3 mins.

  3. Serve the gammon with the salsa spooned over the top. Good with a chicory salad or green beans and chunky-cut chips.

Delicious, quick to prepare and virtually no washing up to boot! A perfect mid week meal. I served it with sweet potato and some grated carrot salad that needed using up which turned it into a very orange meal! But all good. I'd recommend fresh pineapple.
