Large Mexican-style papaya, Meridol, is often sold as cut pieces. If a peeled, cored pineapple isn't available, buy and trim a 3 1/2- to 3 3/4-pound fruit. For garnish, cut long thin shreds of lime peel, green part only.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut pineapple crosswise into 8 to 12 slices. Cut papaya crosswise into thin slices. Cut lime crosswise into paper-thin slices, discarding ends. Arrange fruit on plates.

Step 2

In a 1- to 2-quart pan over high heat, stir corn syrup, lime juice, and cayenne until boiling, 1 to 2 minutes. Add tequila and immediately ignite (not near a vent, fan, or inflammables). Shake pan until flames die down. Spoon syrup over fruit.
