If your grill is already fired up, why not give it a quick brushing and throw dessert on there, too? A balanced tropical marinade brings depth to caramelized pineapple.

How to Make Grilled Pineapple with Brown Sugar, Coconut, & Rum

Step-by-Step

  1. Toast coconut in a small heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until golden-brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Cut 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.
  3. Prepare a gas grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-high heat.
  4. Oil 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.
  5. Note:
    Pineapple can be cooked in an oiled grill pan over medium-high heat.
