Make sure you have enough sauce for the pineapple, as it is sooo good! Pineapple and rum, a match made in heaven. Grilling the fruit makes it even sweeter. If you can't grill the fruit, broil the slices til warmed through and beginning to caramelize. You can even cook the sauce in a pan right ton the grill or make it ahead and reheat while you grill the fruit. Source: unknown

How To Make grilled pineapple with butter sauce

  • 1

    Heat grill, making sure it’s clean and brush or spray it with a touch of oil so the pineapple doesn’t stick. (I wouldn’t spray the grill, as this can be dangerous. Use a paper towel or brush to brush on oil. Just my opinion) Grill pineapple slices til warmed through and caramelized, about 10 minutes per side. Serve at once in rings or chunks, with warm sauce and ice cream if you like. Serves 8

    Note: I like to toss a bit of toasted coconut on top of the ice cream. Source: Cooking New American.
