Easy Grilled Pineapple Recipe: Here's How to Grill a Perfect Pineapple Every Time (It's So Good)

Cooking and grilling outside is a way of life around my house, all year round. My latest obsession? Grilling fresh pineapple! After spending too much time peeling a fresh pineapple recently, I wasn’t very happy when it turned out to be not so sweet. I’d heard that grilling can bring out the sweetness, so I threw it on the grill. Success! The pineapple was sweet and delicious, and found a home on our chicken burgers that night. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 whole pineapple

Here's how to make it:

  • Peel and core the pineapple.
  • Cut it into rings.
  • Heat your grill to about medium.
  • Place rings directly on grill and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, checking often so they don't burn.

Here are some ways to use grilled pineapple:

  1. Dice it up and mix with chopped tomato, onion and cilantro for a healthy salsa.
  2. Top beef, chicken or turkey burgers with a ring or two.
  3. Cube your pineapple and make kebabs with chicken or beef and your favorite vegetables.
  4. Top hot grilled pineapple with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 
  5. Skewer cubes of pineapple and then grill for a kid-friendly snack.

Not a big pineapple fan? Try peaches, mango, nectarines, grapefruit, bananas and even avocado!

Grilled pineapple is the best!

Yes, it is! I had grilled watermelon on a salad a couple weeks ago and that's really good, too.

It's so good, Chrissy Jones! Try watermelon, too. I had a salad not too long ago that had grilled watermelon, spinach, pepitas and cojita. Was amazing.
Ben Olds
It is also amazing if you sprinkle a little cinnamon over it while it is cooking! I've also drizzled orange marmalade over while it is grilling.
Donna John
Yum! Cinnamon is good on anything! Funny you said orange marmalade - I'm making a pork chop recipe tonight with it. Good stuff! And yes, it would be yummy on grilled pineapple. Will try it! Thanks, Ben Olds!
