Grilled Pineapple with Coconut


Grilled Pineapple with Coconut
Grilled pineapple and coconut makes for a sweet and exotic barbecue dish, different from the usual vegetarian staples of mushrooms, corn on the cob and veggie burgers! This quick recipe makes for a great vegetarian and vegan dessert or barbecued side dish. With just a hint of rum, this is a grilled dish for adults, but if you're serving kids, you can omit the rum and it's still quite tasty.

  • 2 tbsp honey or agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp dark rum
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 4 or 5 slices fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup flaked coconut


Whisk together the honey (or agave nectar), rum and lemon juice in a wide dish. Add the pineapple and coat well. Allow the pineapple to marinate for at least one hour in the refrigerator.

Lightly grease your grill and fire up to a medium heat.

Coat the pineapple with coconut on both sides, pressing the coconut into the pineapple to get it to stick.

Grill on both sides for about 8 to 10 minutes.
