Grilled Pineapple with Butter Rum SauceSeptember 2, 2011 by: Cavan
This desert is super easy, has great presentation, and is really really good.
- 1 Pineapple (you can sometimes find a fresh pineapple already sliced in the produce dept)
- Vegetable or Canola Oil
- Brown Sugar
- 1 Cup Rum
- 1 stick of butter
- Vanilla Ice Cream
In a small sauce pan combine the rum, butter and a pinch or so of the brown sugar. Heat until the sugar is melted then let it simmer (the sauce is going to thicken up) for about 10 mins. Whisk often.
In the meantime, slice the pineapple (make sure you core it if you bought a whole pineapple), brush each slice with oil and then coat with the brown sugar. Grill until you have nice grill marks and make sure to keep an eye on the pineapple slices because the sugar will burn pretty quick. 2-3 mins per side.
In a small bowl top each pineapple slice with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream and the butter rum sauce. Garnish with a crispy cookie or wafer.
This desert is best served outside after a great meal with great friends (espeically if you want to impress them with your cooking skills)!
