Barbecued mango cheeks with pomegranates

all details

This is a great dessert to share with friends around the barbecue, as the pomegranate sauce can be made well ahead, leaving only the mangoes to be sliced and cooked for a few minutes before serving. Scarlet pomegranate seeds balance perfectly with the mangoes and add an exotic tart crunch. Buy firm mangoes and leave to soften for a day or two in the fruit bowl.
