Grilled Pineapple With Cilantro

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by awalde

For delicious this side dish you don’t need to spend a lot of time. It’s easy and fast to prepare. Fits perfectly with other pacific islands chicken or fish recipes. Posted for ZWT7. For a Tex-Mex version don't use sesame oil and soya sauce and replace some salt and some drops tabasco if desired. Thanks!

I really enjoyed pineapple cooked this way. I used a Maui Gold pineapple. The grated ginger appears on the ingredient list twice and I couldn't figure out what should have been there so I used 1 Tblsp. of grated ginger and 2 tsp. of crystalized ginger. I broiled it 6 inches from the heat source for 5 minutes and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Pacific Islands.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir in a big bowl all the ingredients until ginger together.-.
  2. Transfer in a flat baking mold in order to have only one layer pineapple crunches.
  3. Top with sugar.
  4. Broil until pineapple is caramelized.
  5. Top with remaining fresh cilantro and serve hot or chilled.
  6. Note: I’ve never tried this recipe with canned pineapple and canned roasted peppers. I suppose that this would work as well too. In any case I’m sure that the fresh ones are better! If you try, please let me know!
