Chargrilled mango cheeks with macadamia, coconut & ginger sauce

chargrilled mango cheeks with macadamia, coconut & ginger sauce

Enjoy this healthy summer dish around the pool this summer.

4 mangoes
2 tablespoons palm sugar, grated
¼ cup shredded coconut, toasted
¼ cup macadamias, roasted and roughly chopped

Macadamia, coconut ginger sauce
1 cup coconut cream
½ cup macadamia butter*
1 knob ginger, peeled and thickly sliced
2 tablespoons Thai palm sugar, shaved
1 kaffir lime leaf, crushed
1 large or 2 small limes, zest and juice


Cut cheeks from mangoes. Discard stones. Cut 3 vertical lines and 3 horizontal lines in each mango cheek, without cutting all the way through.

To make the sauce, place all the ingredients into a small saucepan and cook over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved, stirring constantly. Increase the heat to medium and cook for a further 5 minutes, stirring constantly, or until the sauce thickens. Remove the ginger slices and kaffir lime leaf.

Heat a char-grill on a medium heat. Sprinkle the palm sugar over the flesh of each fruit. Place the fruit flesh side down on grill and cook, turning once to create a cross effect, for 3-5 minutes or until the flesh is caramelized.

Place the grilled fruit onto a large serving plate and drizzle over the coconut ginger sauce and sprinkle with shredded coconut and macadamias.

*Macadamia butter is available at some farmers markets, specialty stores or it is easy to make your own, see the recipe at australian-macadamias.org
