Tropical fruit glaze

Pawpaw and pineapple salsa

  • ½ Dole Pawpaw skin and seeds discarded, diced
  • ½ Dole Tropical Gold Pineapple skin and core discarded, diced
  • 2 tsp ginger finely grated
  • 2 tsp garlic crushed
  • 1 red chilli diced (optional)
  • 1 lime zested and juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • For the pawpaw and pineapple salsa: add all ingredients to a bowl, stir and season to taste. Set aside.
  • For the tropical fruit glaze: add pineapple to a blender and blend until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend until combined. Set aside.
  • For the Pineapple glaze: add ingredients to a sauce pan and place over medium heat. Whisk to combine and simmer for a few minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Line the airfryer basket with two sheets of tin foil, leaving enough tin foil to wrap ham completely. Preheat the airfryer to 170°C.
  • Place ham in and brush with a third of your chosen glaze. Wrap in tin foil and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Open tinfoil, brush on half of remaining glaze, cover with tin foil, and cook for a further 15 minutes.
  • Open up foil and brush on remaining glaze, then cook ham uncovered for a further 10 minutes, to caramelize the glaze. Let cool for 10 minutes before carving and serving with your salsa.

Airfryers truly do it all!! We’ve decided to serve our pineapple with a pawpaw and pineapple salsa to change things up a little.

    Baked this in the oven, as we don’t have an air-fryer. Really loved the pineapple glaze. The pineapple and pawpaw salsa was amazing and it was nice to use ingredients that I don’t usually use.

    How do I prepare the ham if I don’t have an air fryer?

      Hi Janis,

      You can follow the same steps in a traditional oven.
