If you haven’t experienced the deliciousness that is grilled fruit, you seriously are missing out! Lucky for you, I’m here.
There was a pineapple sitting on my counter for a good week, waiting to ripen. On the day it was ready to carve up, I thought back to that time I went on a grilled pineapple bender. I skewered them, sliced them, diced them and grilled those sweet tarts up. I had turkey burgers planned out for that night and subbed out the avocado for grilled pineapple rings.
The sweet, charred, delicious rings made a perfect accompaniment to the burgers and just like that, my grilled fruit obsession returned with a vengeance! Just like these balsamic veggies, Grilled Pineapple is a no-brainer meal! Summer is all about easy, folks.
Grilled Pineapple Rings
- 4 slices Fresh Pineapple, cored and cut in rings
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
- Coconut Oil Spray
Slice pineapple and place in a tupperware or ziploc bag. Sprinkle the brown sugar on to the slices, covering both sides. The sugar will get wet from the natural juices, which is what we want.
Spray each side of the pineapple rings with coconut oil. If you do not have coconut oil, regular olive oil will work fine. Continue to work the brown sugar onto the pieces of pineapple and let sit for about 30 minutes.
Fire up the grill, putting the flames at about medium/medium-high.
Place pineapple rings on the grill and cook for about 10 minutes on each side. The sugar will burn pretty quickly, so make sure the flames aren’t too high. Serve immediately!
The grilled pineapple rings should be charred to perfection after 20 minutes and the flavor should taste sweet like candy. I am drooling just thinking about what other fruit I can grill up!
