Rum soaked Summer Pineapple Rings
This super quick and easy recipe is a lot of fun.. try also cubed on skewers, alone or with other grilled veggies. Makes a great alternative fruity side to your chicken or pork summer BBQ!
1/2 cup dark rum
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon (plus extra for dusting)
1 pineapple, cored and cut into about 6-8 rings (choose desired thickness)
Mint leaves to garnish - optional
In a small bowl, mix together rum, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Then in a glass baking dish, lay out the pineapple rings and pour the rum mixture over them.
Toss to coat, then let soak for at least 15 minutes, flipping the pineapple midway through.
Heat a grill pan or sauté pan over medium-high heat until hot. Lightly grease the pan with cooking spray. Add pineapple slices in an even layer (you may need to do this in multiple batches) and cook for 1-2 minutes per side until browned and grill marks appear.
Transfer to a serving plate and serve warm. Garnish as desired.
