Grilled Pineapple with Rum & Coconut

Prep: 10 minutes Grill: 10 minutes Serves: 6


1 ripe pineapple, peeled and cut crosswise into 6 slices

2–3 tablespoons dark rum

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

1 cup whipped cream

¼ cup shredded coconut, toasted

Preheat the grill to medium high.

Pour the rum and sugar into a bowl with the pineapple slices. Mix to evenly coat the slices, cover with plastic wrap, and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes.

Lightly sear the pineapple directly over the heat for about 10 minutes, using tongs to turn once. Make sure the fruit does not become overly charred. Remove the pineapple from the grill, and top with whipped cream and coconut. If desired, add a heaping scoop of ice cream.
