Grilled pineapple

spicy rubbed grilled pinapple.
One of the most delicious effortless tropical treats is a cinnamon coated grilled pineapple. It instantly transforms any dull day into a fun one.  Equally tantalising is a juicy piece of pineapple with a spicy rub set on a semi char by the grill. The total goodness of the tropical fruit made it even juicier. Except for cleaning up the pokey outer skin, I just love every bit if this fruit.   I guess this is going to stay awhile with us as our go-to option for difficult days or one where the mood swings act up.  
I do find this extremely useful when the kids have a bit of a cough coming along. The cinnamon and the pineapple really soothe the throat for them works brilliantly. Enjoy these effortless treats with your kids.
So, what are you waiting for? Fire up the grill, skewer the pineapple and come along…

Setting this up for a bbq

The simpler the idea, the better it is for summer. We certainly don’t want to slog over the stove but enjoy the company over the barbie. Here is another we love to add to the list – Grilled radicchio with citrus dressing. Whip up a quick  Quickest sweetcorn and cheese dip, toast some bread and have some great company. This is certainly what summer with a barbeque calls for in reality. To get the conversations flowing,  keep these cooling drinks coming – Fresh grapes jaljeera or Mango spritzer. Don’t forget to finish up with the perfect Mango Basil Sorbet.

My family is crazy for grilled pineapple and I always end up grilling the pineapples rather than eating fresh. It looks amazing.

Grilled pineapples – Absolutely addictive. My husband is slightly allergic to pineapples so I make this for him and eat the fresh ones myself. Our spicy and sweet rubs are almost similar only with the exception of cinnamon which we dont prefer. I use jaggery instead of sugar…Your post reminds me I should make a batch soon now… Super share!

I love pineapples, I like them on pizza, I like eating them on a fruit cocktail, I also love ’em eating them raw. I haven’t tried them grilled so this sounds exciting to me. I think I can easily find the ingredients, I just need to find somewhere where I could grill them. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
