  1. Heat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Toss the potatoes with half the oil, then season. Spread on a baking tray lined with nonstick baking paper and roast for 30-35 mins, tossing halfway through.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the honey with a splash of water. Trim the fat from the gammon and cut in half. Brush with 1 tsp oil and season. Heat a ridged griddle pan and cook 2 pieces of gammon for 2-3 mins per side, until cooked through. Brush half the honey mix over the cooked gammon. Keep warm while you repeat with the remaining gammon and honey mix.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the pineapple with the allspice and 1 tsp oil, plus a twist of black pepper. Roast on a baking tray for 15 mins. Put the onion in a bowl with the lime juice and zest. Season. Add the roasted pineapple and stir through with the chopped herbs.
  4. Serve the gammon with the pineapple salsa, crispy potatoes, radishes and watercress salad.
