I wasn’t kidding when I said that we’re excited about barbecue season. We’ve been grilling up our dinner almost every day this week! One night, while we already had the barbecue fired up, I decided to try grilling pineapple for a fun seasonal dessert. I’ve tried other grilled fruits, like peaches, and they’ve turned out fantastic.
Barbecuing the fruit caramelizes some of the natural sugars and gives it a slightly smokey taste. I made up some of our favourite Whipped Coconut Cream to go with it, and it was perfect for dipping the pineapple pieces.
What you’ll need:
- 1 pineapple
- 1 lime, juiced and zested
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- whipped coconut cream
- garnish: lime slices, coconut flakes, lime zest
On low heat, grill the pineapple pieces with the brushed side down. Brush the other side with the marinade while it cooks.
Serve pineapple pieces with Whipped Coconut Cream and garnish with lime slices, coconut flakes or lime zest.
