Grilled Mango & Pineapple with Pistachio Yoghurt

While we love to just eating a wide variety of fresh fruit cuts, sometimes we also love other ways to enjoy them. Here's sharing a few easy to prepare fruity desserts  :
BBQ Orange Parcels
Baked Apples
As fruit sauce Mango and yogurt sauce
Apricot Banana Compote

And now ... to grill them ... mangoes + pineapples !

Below my slightly modified version in blue.

Grilled Mango & Pineapple with Pistachio Yoghurt
3 small mangoes (2 medium-sized mangoes)
1/2 small pineapple, peeled (I used honey sweet pineapple)
4 Tablespoons finely grated palm sugar  (I reduced to 1.5 tablespoons light brown sugar as preferred the natural sweetness from the fruits)
Canola oil or cooking spray (I used Canola oil)
250g plain yoghurt (I used low-fat natural yogurt)
40g pistachio kernels, roasted, chopped
Lime wedges, to serve (omitted as don't have any)

Method :
Step 1
With skin, cut cheeks from mangoes. Discard stones. Cut 3 vertical lines and 3 horizontal lines in each mango cheek, without cutting all the way through. Cut pineapple into 6 thick slices.

Step 2
Sprinkle cut side of fruits with some brown sugar. Lightly coat a grill pan with a little oil. Heat the pan over medium flame. Cook the mango, cut-side down, for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from grill pan and transfer to a plate. Cook the pineapple for 2 minutes each side or until lightly browned.

Step 3
Lightly roast the pistachio nuts and set aside to cool. Combine and mix well yoghurt and roasted pistachio in a bowl. Serve the grilled fruits with yoghurt mixture.
Dinner - pan fried fish fillet served with
some oatmeal potato cakes & blanched carrots + french beans. ... plus some grilled mangoes & pineapples ♡
