Grilled Pineapple Skewers with Honey-Thyme Glaze
3 - 4
PersonalPoints™ per serving
Grilling caramelizes the natural sugars in ripe pineapple, intensifying the sweetness and creating smoky depth. Here, a glaze of honey, fresh thyme, and rice vinegar adds a pleasing hit of sweet and sour contrast. If you don’t have time to slice a whole pineapple into spears, use precut chunks from the store’s produce section.
2 tsp(s), unseasoned
2 tsp(s), stems removed
1 medium, (about 1 lb)
- In a small bowl, mix the honey, vinegar and thyme.
- With a sharp chef’s knife, slice off the top and bottom of the pineapple. Cut away the peel. Slice the pineapple in half, then cut each half lengthwise into 6 equal slices. Cut away the tough core from each piece. Thread each piece of pineapple onto a skewer.
- Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Grill the pineapple until warmed through and grill marks appear, about 6 minutes, turning once and basting several times with the glaze.
