Grilled Pineapple With Basil and Mint

“My favorite thing thing to make on the grill is pineapple. Grilling fresh pineapple brings out the sweetness of it. This recipe really takes it up to another level in flavors. It is fancy enough for guest and easy enough to make anytime. I like it with spiced rum too.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the tops off the pineapples and set aside some of the leaves for garnishing later. Carefully peel of the skin with a serrated knife and cut off the bottoms. Slice into 4, 1 inch thick circles, then with an apple corer, remove the core of each round of pineapple.
  2. Together place the brown sugar, butter, mint, basil into a small saucepan and melt together. Bring to the boil for 1-3 minutes or until syrupy then set aside.
  3. Heat a griddle until it gets so hot it begins to smoke. With a pastry brush, brush a thin layer of the sauce onto each piece of pineapple and griddle in 2 batches for 4-5 mins on each side or until the pineapple rings are slightly charred.
  4. Serve 2 rings per person with a drizzle of the hot sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
