In a medium saucepan, add the coconut milk, the water (for the rice) and the salt (for the rice) and bring to the boil. Add the basmati rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes.

TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Drain the pineapple slices.


Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the pineapple slices and cook until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes each side. Remove from the pan and roughly chop. Transfer to a large bowl.


Roughly chop the cucumber and tomato. Pick and roughly chop the mint leaves. Zest the lemon to get a good pinch, then slice into wedges. Add the cucumber, tomato, mint, lemon zest, a good squeeze of lemon juice and a small drizzle of olive oil to the pineapple. Season to taste. Roughly chop the baby spinach leaves.


Return the frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil to a high heat. Add the pork mince and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until browned and cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic, mild Caribbean jerk seasoning and the water (for the pork) and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 2 minutes.


Stir the spinach through the coconut rice. Divide the coconut and spinach rice between bowls and top with the Caribbean pork. Spoon over the charred pineapple salsa. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges.
