RECIPE: Grilled Pineapple with Lime and Coconut

by | Feb 27, 2017

I love the combination of lime and coconut. It’s one of those pairings that can’t be argued, like peanut butter and chocolate!

With the theme of “have fun with your fruit” here is a delicious fruit dessert that makes you feel like you’re on an island!


RECIPE: Grilled Pineapple with Lime and Coconut

serves 6


1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
Zest and juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1 pineapple, peeled, cored, cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges


  1. Place coconut in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until coconut is golden and lightly toasted. Transfer to a bowl.
    2. Preheat grill to medium. In a small bowl, combine lime juice and sugar.
    3. Oil grill. Put pineapple wedges on grill and cook, turning once, until softened and browned in spots, 7 to 8 minutes total. Transfer pineapple to a dish and dot with lime juice mixture.
    4. Just before serving, arrange pineapple on a platter and sprinkle with lime zest and toasted coconut.
