Grilled Pineapple with Buttered Rum Sauce

Grilled Pineapple with Buttered Rum Sauce
Ingredients:
1 pineapple, cored and cut into 1/2 in slices
1/2 dark brown sugar
1/4 cup dark rum
3 tablespoons butter

Directions:
Lightly spray a grill pan and heat until hot. Place pineapple slices on the grill and allow to cook 3-4 minutes on each side. When it is time to flip, you should see caramelized grill marks on the slice. If not, cook it a little longer. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring the butter, rum and sugar to almost a full boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 10 minutes or until it is slightly thick and can coat the back of a spoon. Whisk occasionally to insure that it doesn't separate. Serve warm.


My thoughts:
We bought some really delicious "gold" pineapple and wanted to make something special out of it. Grilling really brings out the sweetness in the pineapple. The sauce is very good and easy to make. I bet it would be good on ice cream or even made into a butter free verison.
