Preparation 20 min Heat rating (No heat)
Cooking 10 min Ease (Easy)
Vegetarian Yes


tsp Chinese five spice
2 Dried Kaffir Lime Leaves
150ml dry sherry
50g Caster Sugar
24 lychees, fresh

1 medium pineapple, peeled, cored and cubed


Place the sake, sugar, lime leaves and Chinese five spice in a small pan and heat gently, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and simmer rapidly for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel the lychees and carefully remove the stones. Thread the lychees and pineapple cubes alternately onto 12 skewers. Transfer to a shallow dish and pour over the syrup. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Divide between four plates, drizzling over any remaining syrup. Serve warm with Waitrose Pineapple and Mango Swirl Sorbet.
