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. The grill caramelizes the pineapple to make it super sweet and deeply flavorful. The citrus sauce balances it out with a jolt of tanginess.
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.
I hope you enjoy this quick recipe! Let me know if you make it!
- 1 ripe pineapple, cut into spears
- 1 cup fresh mint
- juice of two limes & rind of one lime
