Exotic Fruit Salad (Hoa Qua Tron) Recipes

Ingredients :

85 tbsp sugar

300ml water

2 tbsp stem ginger syrup

2 pieces star anise

1 piece cinnamon stick, 2.5cm long

1 clove

juice of 1/2 lemon

2 sprigs mint

1 medium pineapple

1 mango, peeled and sliced

2 bananas, sliced

8 lychees, fresh or canned

225g fresh strawberries, trimmed and halved

2 pieces stem ginger, cut into sticks

Method :

Measure the sugar into a saucepan, and add the water, ginger syrup, spices, lemon juice and mint. Bring to the boil and simmer for 3 minutes. Strain into a large bowl and allow to cool. Remove both the top and bottom from the mango and remove the outer skin. Stand the mango on one end and remove the flesh in two pieces either side of the flat stone (pit). Slice evenly and add to the syrup. Add the bananas, lychees, strawberries and ginger. Chill until ready to serve. Cut the pineapple in half down the center. Loosen the flesh with a small serrated knife and remove to form two boat shapes. Cut the flesh into large chunks and place in the cooled syrup. Spoon the fruit salad into the pineapple halves and bring to the table on a large serving dish. There will be enough fruit salad left over to refill the pineapple halves.

A variety of fruits can be used for this salad depending on what is available. Look out for mandarin oranges, star fruit, paw paw, Cape gooseberries and passion fruit.

Serves 4-6
