Grilled Pineapple

Recipe type: Side Dish
  • 1 large ripe pineapple
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (I didn’t add the pepper)
  1. Trim, core, and peel pineapple
  2. Cut into quarters from top to bottom
  3. Slice out the core from each quarter
  4. Cut each quarter slice into four pieces (two pieces lengthwise and two crosswise)
  5. You should now have 12 wedges of pineapple (about 3-inch by 1-inch each)
  6. In a small bowl, combine honey, lemon or lime juice, and black pepper
  7. Brush the glaze onto each slice of pineapple, coating completely
  8. Preheat barbecue grill
  9. Either oil or spray the grill rack with non-stick cooking spray
  10. Place pineapple wedges on the grill and cook approximately 4 minutes on each side (turning so that grill marks are on all sides) until the pineapple becomes fragrant and starts to dry out on the surface
  11. NOTE: Don’t overcook, or they’ll turn mushy
  12. Remove from the grill and brush with any additional glaze one more time
  13. Serve and enjoy!
  14. Makes 6 servings
