Fresh grilled pineapple is an amazing grilled treat
There are some sure signs grilling season is here. First, there’s the sun and the warm temperatures. Then there’s the obsession with seeking out items to grill and finally there are entire meals being made right on the grill.
Earlier I made Lemon Rosemary Grilled Chicken, Pineapple Salsa and now…Grilled Pineapple! Grilled pineapple made with fresh pineapple is so simple and is perfect with any grilled meat or even eaten as a dessert.
My first experience with fresh grilled pineapple was at a Brazilian Grill. We had this amazing array of meats that the wait staff brought around on huge skewers and would slice off a piece right onto your plate.
Then came the grilled pineapple! Can you say AMAZING? The kids and I decide we needed to replicate this at home. After a couple of tries, we finally came up with perfection!
Begin by cutting of both ends of the pineapple. Then cut off the outer skin.
Slice into large slabs, leaving the core intact.
Place on a hot, clean grill. Cook for just a few minutes on each side and serve! That’s it! Simple and Delicious.
