Coconut Brown Sugar Glazed Grilled Pineapple

I adore Grilled Pineapple. It is seriously amazing. I have tried my fair share of grilled pineapple recipes… but I felt it needed a hint of something special. Coconut Extract :) MMMM… it is incredible. I mean, we all like that Pina Colada flavor right? Coconut and Pineapple are meant to be BFFS. Warm grilled pineapple topped with a sweet glaze, is there anything better?!

If you need a quick grill side dish recipe for your next BBQ, let this be it! You will fall in love!

    I just made this tonight and it was wonderful! It was so easy; the hardest thing to do was cutting up the pineapple. I actually used my grill pan to make it and it worked out great. I forgot to pick up coconut extract so I had to substitute vanilla extract and I also added a pinch of fleur de sel too because I like the contrast it brings to sweet dishes. All in all, it was delicious and I knew my husband loved it too when he asked for seconds! Will definitely be making this again!

    I use a splash of Pina Colada mix in a bottle, brown sugar, and honey. It takes a while to grill the pineapple, so start early when grilling chicken
