- Peel, quarter and core the Asian pears

- Cut them into slices and sprinkle with the lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown

- Peel the oranges, removing all the white pith

- Cut them across into neat slices

- Melt the butter in a frying pan

- Add the sugar and stir until dissolved

- Add the pear slices and cook gently for about 3 minutes on each side or until they are just tender but still quite firm

- Add the orange slices for the last minute of cooking, turning them to coat well with the juices in the pan

- Using a draining spoon, remove the pears and oranges to a shallow serving dish and keep warm

- Boil the juices remaining in the pan to reduce a little, then pour over the fruit. Pour the brandy into the frying pan, heat it and set alight

- Pour over the fruit.

- Serve on warmed plates, sprinkled with the pistachios and decorated with lemon balm.
