Grilled pineapple and coconut makes for a sweet and exotic barbecue dish, different from the usual vegetarian staples of mushrooms, corn on the cob and veggie burgers! This quick recipe makes for a great vegetarian and vegan dessert or barbecued side dish. With just a hint of rum, this is a grilled dish for adults, but if you’re serving kids, you can omit the rum and it’s still quite tasty.



Whisk together the honey (or agave nectar), rum and lemon juice in a wide dish. Add the pineapple and coat well. Allow the pineapple to marinate for at least one hour in the refrigerator.Lightly grease your grill and fire up to a medium heat.

Coat the pineapple with coconut on both sides, pressing the coconut into the pineapple to get it to stick.

Grill on both sides for about 8 to 10 minutes.
