  • 1 large gammon steak, rind on (about 350g12oz; 1cm/½in thick)
  • a little oil, for brushing
  • 1 tsp clear honey
  • 100g fresh pineapple, finely chopped
  • 1 large red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp soft brown sugar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander


  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.
