Nice as dessert or as a breakfast/lunch dish. Make sure that the pineapple is ripe. Best eaten warm, but can also be served cold.


  1. Clean the pineapple and cut it lengthwise in slices of circa 1 cm.
  2. Grill the slices until golden brown.
  3. Whip the mascarpone with the honey and lemon juice.
  4. Cut the basil into thin ribbons and mix with the icing sugar.
  5. DIstribute the pineapple over four plates, and garnish with the mascarpone mixture and the sugar/basil mixture.

I've grilled pineapple before, but never had a topping for it. I did not have basil handy, so I used some fresh apple mint, which worked very well with the other ingredients. Will do this again with basil. I grilled this on my panini grill.
