Grilled Pineapple with Coconut Sorbet


It's okay to have dessert -- in moderation. Here we jazzed up grilled pineapple with fresh mint and mini scoops of sorbet.

  • Prep:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, January/February 2009


  • Vegetable oil, for grates or pan
  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cut crosswise into 4 thick slices, and cored
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup coconut sorbet
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh mint leaves, for garnish


  1. Heat grill or a grill pan to medium; lightly oil grates or pan. In a bowl, toss pineapple with honey and cayenne. Grill until light-brown grill marks appear, 10 to 15 minutes, turning once. Serve pineapple with sorbet; garnish with mint.

Cook's Notes

To peel the pineapple: Using a chef's knife, trim the top and bottom, remove the peel, and slice the fruit. Cut out the tough core with a paring knife.

    If you are unable to find coconut sorbet in your area, there are many other recipe sites out there - try or (there are hundreds though!) Good luck!

    This web site drives me crazy. Give us all of the recipes or tell us where to buy toe "coconut sorbet". This site is not the easiest to navigate through and it's slow.

    This recipe says "Grilled Pinapple and Coconut Sorbet" . The pineapple part is the easy part but doesn't give recipe for the "Sorbrt". You're expected to go out and purchase that. I thought this is where we're supposed to get RECIPES. Don't get me wrong I do love this site, but it annoys me when we live all over THE GLOBE and we can't ALL purchase everything that's in U.S.A. Give us others a break and actually print ALL the recipe ingredients not with re-made ingredients.

    sounds like a summer dessert, but so what? i'm a guy. guys will eat anything off the floor. but remember: honey will rot your teeth faster than sugar. so, to make it a bit healthier, try using a sugar-free syrup, or make your own, or use the pineapple juice itself, or skip it altogether. happy new year, everybody! mike
