Lime, coconut, and brown sugar heighten the flavor of Grilled Pineapple. Although this grilled dessert is a winner as is, Grilled Pineapple with Lime and Coconut is also great over vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored, cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges
