Grilled Pineapple

Summertime is grilling time but we rarely think about grilling fruit. It really is a wonderful way to take advantage of all the amazing fruit in season as well as a healthy treat. One of my favorite fruits to grill is pineapple. It goes with almost anything and also makes a nice spread! Now, I don't personally have a barbecue since, well, I don't have a yard, so I prepare this in my handy stove top grill pan. However you do this, it's easy and delicious.


  • 1 large pineapple
  • 1 lime
  • Vegetable oil to coat grill
  • Honey
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds
  1. Cut ends off the pineapple and reserve stems.
  2. Stand pineapple upright and cut off the skin in strips.
  3. Quarter the pineapple lengthwise and cut out the core.
  4. Cut each quarter into 3 spears.
  5. Zest the lime and reserve.
  6. Cut the zested lime in half and squeeze the juice over the spears.
  7. Brush the grill pan or outdoor grill with vegetable oil or spray lightly with cooking spray.
  8. Grill pineapple until evenly marked all over, 5 minutes.
  9. Garnish spears with lime zest, drizzled honey and sesame seeds.
  10. Arrange with stems on platter.

This is one of my favorites when I do a big cookout. I never would have thought of the toasted sesame seeds though~! I wish we did not live clear across the country so we could invite each other over for a sample ;) I am an amazing cook too!
