    FOR THE CARAMEL SAUCE

    FOR THE PINEAPPLE

    • 2/3 cup fresh shredded coconut
    • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored, cut into twenty 1-inch pieces
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

    Directions:

    1. 1
      TO MAKE THE CARAMEL SAUCE:.
    2. 2
      Stir the sugar and water in a heavy based small sauce pan over a medium heat for about 2 minutes or until the sugar dissolves.
    3. 3
      Simmer the melted sugar without stirring for about 8 minutes or until it becomes golden brown, wiping down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush to remove any sugar crystals and swirling the pan occasionally.
    4. 4
      Once the sugar has turned golden brown, add the coconut cream and stir to blend (the mixture will bubble vigorously when the cream is added).
    5. 5
      Watch your hands!
    6. 6
      Simmer over a medium to low heat for about 3 minutes or until the caramel melts and the sauce thickens slightly.
    7. 7
      Remove the coconut caramel sauce from the heat and pour it into a serving bowl.
    8. 8
      TO TOAST THE COCONUT:.
    9. 9
      Preheat the broiler to low heat.
    10. 10
      Sprinkle the coconut evenly over a baking sheet.
    11. 11
      Broil the coconut for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until it is lightly golden.
    12. 12
      Watch the coconut closely while it broils to ensure it does not burn since it will cook quite quickly.
    13. 13
      Transfer the toasted coconut to a plate.
    14. 14
      TO COOK THE PINEAPPLE SKEWERS:.
    15. 15
      Thread 1 piece of pineapple on the end of each skewer, making 20 skewers (if using wooden skewers ~ soak for 30 before because if not they will catch on fire).
    16. 16
      Heat a cast iron grill pan over medium to high heat until it is very hot.
    17. 17
      Brush the pan with a little melted butter and grill the pineapple for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until it is heated through and grill marks appear.
    18. 18
      Remove the pineapple skewers from the pan and place them on a serving platter.
    19. 19
      Serve the pineapple skewers with the caramel sauce and toasted coconut alongside.
    20. 20
      The skewers are designed to be dipped into the caramel sauce and then into the toasted coconut.
    21. 21
      Enjoy this romantic dessert!

      I love making this especially when I am having a bbq. Using fresh ingredients is always best but I sometimes use canned pineapple and sweetened coconut and it comes out god. Thanks for posting it saves me the trouble.
