I am not a fan of Coconut but the Rum-Spiked part and grilled pineapple is just awesome... It is a summer time favorite and seems to wow guest everytime

We used canned, sliced pineapple to save on prep time and marinated in a mix of regular rum and coconut rum, and added a little cinnamon on top too. Despite the shortcuts, it was still the favorite dish of the evening! Next time we'll be slicing up a whole pineapple and letting it soak in the rum for several hours. Delicious dessert - grilled fruit is awesome in the summertime!

Very pretty on the plate. Used Appleton rum, because that's what we had -- still very good but probably should have planned ahead and bought Morgan's to get the fuller flavor. Recommend.

I used Bacardi Select rum and this turned out excellent. I told my husband its like a solid pina colada. I served this with Seafood cakes with mustard crema (another CL recipe) and rice pilaf - delish. Will definitely make again. It is definitely worth a special occasion; it looks so beautiful on the plate.

My husband cut up our pineapple before he knew I was using it for a recipe. Since it was in chunks, I couldn't grill it. I baked/broiled it in a 13 x 9 pan in the oven. It was delicious. My family said this recipe was a keeper. This would be a great dessert to serve at a dinner party.

Used regular dark rum and Vanilla icecream but it lacked something, maybe Captain Morgan would have been better.

I love any dessert involving pineapple so this was a must fix. I saved some remaining sauce for a drizzle over the finished dish! Check out mine here - http://thechefamy.blogspot.com

I couldn't taste the rum or brown sugar at all! The pineapple was good, but that had nothing to do with this recipe.

This was very good. I let the pineapple marinate in the rum mixture while we ate dinner, then saved the sauce to spoon over vanilla ice cream for the adults. Definitely don't skip the toasted coconut. Next time I will probably cut my pineapple into rings or thin wedges since it was a little unweildy to cut with a spoon for the kids.

Added some shredded cheddar cheese to this one as a modification of another recipe. Instead of brushing the pineapple, I soaked the pineapple in the rum and brown sugar...then later added the juice with orange juice for a cocktail to pair with dinner. It was so good. I paired this with the flank steak recipe and the asparagus boats...my family wanted more, but there was none left!

I just made this tonight, sans ice cream, with Carribean jerk chicken and grilled sweet potatoes. It was lovely served this way. Wish I had made enough to have with ice cream for sessert.
