Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKING IT NUTTY OR WITH MADEIRA CAKE

Top with a few flakes of toasted almonds or pecan nuts. Or to try another version, once cooked, thinly slice the pears. Serve on a thick slice of Madeira cake, top with vanilla ice cream and spoon over the sauce.
