  1. Carefully peel and halve pears. Remove core with a teaspoon. Sprinkle with a little lemon juice to prevent browning. Place hollow side down into 4 individual serving dishes. Combine remaining ingredients and mask over pears. Garnish with a sprinkling of cayenne pepper and a sprig of parsley. Serve as a light summer entree. Alternatively, omit cayenne and parsley and serve as a refreshing dessert, garnished with kiwi fruit slices and mandarin segments.
