Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 2/3 of the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati rice, water and salt, stir, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove 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, drain the pineapple slices. Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the pineapple slices and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and slightly charred, 3-4 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.


While the pineapple is charring, roughly chop the cucumber, tomato and coriander. Zest the lime to get a generous pinch and cut into wedges. Thinly slice the long red chilli (if using). Roughly chop the charred pineapple.


In a medium bowl, add the cucumber, tomato, pineapple, lime zest and 1/2 the coriander. Add a generous squeeze of lime juice and a drizzle of olive oil. Toss to coat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the pork mince and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until browned and cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Add the mild Caribbean jerk seasoning and remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.


Divide the garlic rice and Caribbean spiced pork between bowls. Top with the charred pineapple salsa. Serve with the remaining lime wedges.
