Grilled Pineapple Satay
This dessert is a take on the popular satay dish but this is a simple dessert version made with grilled pineapple.
- 1 ripe pineapple
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted
Skewer and fresh pineapple and set aside. In a small saucepan, combine sugar with 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil, swirling to dissolve sugar; boil, swirling occasionally (do not stir), until just golden and honeylike. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in coconut milk (mixture will bubble furiously).
Place skewered pineapple on hot grill. Using a pastry brush, coat pineapple pieces with caramel sauce. Grill just until marks appear, then turn to mark other side, 4 to 5 minutes total. Put skewers on a platter, sprinkle with toasted coconut, and serve with remaining caramel sauce.
