Grilled Pineapple with Coconut

Grilled Pineapple with Coconut

A while back, I received "Simple Smart BBQ" by Julius Jaspers, a Dutch BBQ Book. However, a delicious recipe from the book shouldn't be missed, and I quickly knew which one to choose. Julius often has the most enjoyable recipes for desserts and fruit on the BBQ, and this grilled pineapple with coconut was soon on my to-do list! The recipe isn't entirely according to the book because I'm not the biggest fan of the liquor that is originally in the recipe . However, my version is definitely worth trying!

  • While the pineapple is grilling, spread the grated coconut on a plate. After the second 5 minutes, remove the pineapple pieces from the BBQ and roll them in the grated coconut.
  • Then, place the pieces back on the BBQ and grill them for a few more minutes on each side. Be careful not to let the coconut burn too much.
  • Remove the pineapple quarters from the BBQ and serve them immediately. Enjoy your meal!
