Rum and Coconut Pineapple Rings (Serves: 6)
– 6 pineapple rings (fresh or tinned); 2tbsp honey; 60ml rum; 1 cup thick coconut milk; 1tsp lemon juice; 1tsp cinnamon powder; coconut or vanilla ice cream to serve
– Prepare the marinade for the pineapples by combining honey, rum, coconut milk, lemon juice and cinnamon powder.
– Dip the pineapple rings in the marinade and refrigerate for about an hour. You can also prepare the pineapple to this stage, the day before you plan to barbeque them.
– Heat the barbeque grill to medium and oil the grate lightly. Cook the pineapple rings directly on the grill for about three to four minutes on both sides.
– Alternately, place a grill pan on the barbeque and cook the rings on the pan over the grill for about six minutes on each side.
– Serve with a scoop of ice cream in the center of the pineapple ring and drizzle with the leftover marinade syrup.
