Ingredients

1/2 c
sweetened flaked coconut
1
pineapple peeled (3 1/2-to-4 pound)
1/2 c
packed dark brown sugar
1/4 c
dark rum
2 Tbsp
curry powder (preferably madras)
1 Tbsp
fresh lime juice
vanilla ice cream, optional

Step-By-Step

1Toast coconut in a small heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until golden-brown, about 5 minutes.

2Cut pineapple crosswise into 8 slices (about 3/4 inch thick) and core slices. Stir together remaining ingredients in a shallow glass baking dish and add pineapple in 1 layer, turning to coat evenly. Marinate, turning occasionally, 30 minutes.

3Prepare a gas grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-high heat.

4Oil grill rack. Grill pineapple (reserve marinade), covered, turning once, until grill marks appear and pineapple is heated through, about 4 minutes. Serve pineapple with marinade and sprinkle with toasted coconut.

5Note:
Pineapple can be cooked in an oiled grill pan over medium-high heat.
