  • 1 knife
  • 1 Chopping board
  • 1 zester
  • 1 Food processor or blender


  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 habanero chillis
  • 2 shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 1 handful coriander/cilantro
  • salt and pepper


  • Grate the zest from the lime, taking care to only grate the green surface layer of zest, and stop once you reach the white layer of pith. The white pith is bitter in taste, so we don't want to include it! 
  • Slice your lime in half and juice it. 
  • Slice the bell pepper into small square pieces. 
  • Remove the papery outer layer from the shallot and garlic and trim the base. 
  • Slice your pineapple horizontally into rings, before trimming off the outer skin. Chop into pieces, removing the central core. 
  • Slice your habanero chilli in half and remove the stem. You can either keep or discard the seeds and white pith but be warned, there is a lot of heat in those bits. 
  • Shred your fresh herbs and cut the stalk into small pieces. 
  • Add everything to a food processor and blend until smooth and fully incorporated. Season to taste.
