Grilled Pineapple Relish
1 small pineapple, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch rounds, cored
Canola oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 serrano chile, finely diced
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro leaves
Honey, to taste
Glaze
4 tablespoons canola oil
Relish:

1) Heat the griddle over high heat.

2) Brush the pineapple with a few tablespoons of oil and season with salt and pepper. Griddle until golden brown on all sides.

3) Remove the pineapple from the griddle, dice finely and transfer to a bowl. Add the onion, chilli, vinegar, a few tablespoons of oil, coriander and honey, to taste. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Glaze:

1) Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add the onions and cook until soft. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in the sugar, add the rum and cook until reduced by half.

2) Add the stock, habanero, cinnamon stick and star anise, bring to a boil and cook until reduced by half, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.

3) Strain the mixture into a bowl then return it to the saucepan and continue cooking until reduced by half and thickened to a glaze, season with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into a bowl and let cool to room temperature.

Pork fillet:

1) Heat the griddle over high heat.

2) Brush the fillet with the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and season with salt and pepper. Griddle until crusty and charred on both sides and the internal temperature reaches 62C on an instant-read thermometer, brushing with the glaze during the last few minutes of griddling.

3) Remove from the griddle, brush with more of the glaze and let rest 5 minutes before slicing into 1 1/4 cm-thick slices.

Serve the pork with the relish.
