Grilled Pineapple With Butter Rum Sauce, From Man Cave Cuisine
So you want a different dessert for summer instead of plain ice cream? Try this for a quick easy and refreshing change. Serve the kids ice cream sundaes and the adults Grilled Pineapple with Butter Rum Sauceat your next barbeque.
What I like most about this is you can make the sauce and grill the pineapple ahead of time. When it comes time for dessert, just assemble and watch your guest devour this “adult” twist to ice cream!
The recipe came from Man Cave Cuisine.
§ 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.
