Preheat oven to 200ºC.

Place pears in a baking dish with the cut side down. Dissolve the sugar and salt in the espresso over a medium heat and add the vanilla extract.

Pour the liquid over the pears, cover with foil and cook for 30 minutes. Uncover, turn the pears over and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Remove the pears (cover with foil to keep warm). Pour the liquid in a small pot and boil for 5 minutes to reduce and thicken slightly.

Serve the pears drizzled with some syrup and a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or slightly sweetened Greek yoghurt.
