To make the grilled pineapple:
- Cut the skin off the pineapple, slice it into 10 slices and remove the core from the centre of each slice with an apple corer.
- Brush the pineapple with the oil, grate the lime zest evenly over the slices and using a pepper mill, grind the Szechuan pepper over the slices.
- Place the pineapple under a hot grill and cook until the edges start to blacken.

Drain any excess marinade from the langoustines. Place two large heavy based frying pans over a high heat and leave for one minute. Divide the langoustine tails between the two pans and sauté for one minute. Place the pans under a hot grill and grill for a further two minutes. Remove from the grill, and simply serve the langoustines with some avocado purée, a small green salad and the grilled pineapple.
Garnish with the coriander cress. This dish should be served warm, not hot.
