Grilled pineapple with brown sugar glaze
1-2 cups brown sugar
1 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch or two of sea salt
If you are doing this on the stove top, stir mixture until well incorporated on medium-low. Be sure and remove from heat before the mixture comes to a boil!
6.Place pineapple circles onto grill. Quickly brush each circle with a generous amount of the brown sugar glaze.
Flip circles, glazed side down, then glaze the other "naked" side.
Wait 2-3 minutes until glaze has carmelized and grill has produced beautiful grill marks, then flip over and grill other side.
I usually repeat this process twice (sometimes three times depending on how thick I cut the pineapple).
7.Remove and serve. This dish is best served while still warm.
I like to serve this as a side to grilled Teriyaki chicken or it can be added to a Teriyaki burger.
This can also be served as a dessert on top of vanilla ice cream.
