Several years ago at a goodbye dinner for a colleague, I had a grilled pineapple carpaccio. I've thought about that dessert more times than I'd care to admit. It was extremely flavorful, but in my efforts to recreate it - thinly slicing pineapple on a mandoline - I've only succeeded in making giant, watery messes. This recipe still hits all those notes, but is infinitely easier to make.

Grilled Pineapple with Lime Mint Sauce
This grilled pineapple recipe with minted lime sauce is a gorgeous, simple dessert that makes an already delicious fruit really shine.
Ingredients
  • 1 ripe pineapple, cut into spears
  • 1 cup fresh mint
  • juice of two limes & rind of one lime
  • 3 tablespoons cane sugar
Instructions
1. Heat grill (or grill pan) to high heat. Place pineapple on grill and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until dark grill marks appear. After both sides have been grilled, remove and let rest for 3 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, blitz the mint, lime juice and rind, and sugar in a food processor or blender - add a little water if the mixture doesn't come together. It should be a chunky sauce though, so don't add too much water. 3. Top the pineapple with the mint sauce and serve.
