Dessert is the quickest way to get people excited after a fine meal. The anticipation of something sweet and satisfying is hard to overcome. Throwing some pineapple on the grill could be just the ticket, and a simple way, to get that blood flowing.
- 1 large pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into one-inch thick slices
- 3/4 cup dark rum
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- vanilla ice cream
- roasted cocunut
Mix rum, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon together until sugar is dissolved.
Preheat charcoal grill to medium-high heat.
Place pineapple on grill, using tongs to turn. Baste with rum sauce while grilling.
Turn sparingly. Grill 10 minutes or until sear marks form.
Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream. Drizzle remaining rum sauce and roasted coconut for the ‘wow’ factor.
