Honey and Lime Grilled Pineapple

This Honey and Lime Grilled Pineapple comes together in just minutes and is healthy taste of the tropics (especially topped with coconut ice cream!)

My obsession with pineapple began when I was young on our family’s annual trips to Hawaii. Living in Alaska meant dealing with some serious cold and dark spells, so each spring our family would fly south to defrost on the warm beaches of Hawaii. And growing up in Alaska meant we never had the cream of the crop when it came to exotic fruits. You’d pay big money for a pineapple in Alaska, only to find it pale, sour, and far less than satisfying.

So when I first sunk my teeth into a Hawaiian pineapple while visiting the Dole Plantation on Oahu, my world flipped upside down. The rest of that vacation was spent in oscillation between stuffing my face with pineapple, not being able to eat anymore on account of the bromelain in it burning my tongue, and impatiently waiting to be able to eat pineapple again. It was a vicious, delicious cycle.

And since visiting Southeast Asia last month, I’ve been antsy to incorporate some tropical flavor into the potato/cheese/bread-happy routine that is Dutch cuisine. Thanks to the help of The Vegetarian Flavor Bible (the prize in the giveaway I held last week…congrats Jill!), I learned that pineapple actually goes really well with lime and honey, and so this Honey and Lime Grilled Pineapple was born!

    I also have an obsession with pineapples! I can only imagine how wonderful it must taste when it is perfectly ripened. Stunning photography. Great post. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Sarah says:

      Ah the flavor of a ripe pineapple + a bit of caramelization from the grill = SUPERB! Thanks so much for your kind words and for stopping by, Maria! 🙂

  2. Beautiful presentation! I love grilled fruits in the summer! Perfect sweet ending 😉

    1. Sarah says:

      I’m just starting to get on board with grilled fruits, and I’m not sure why it took me so long!

  3. Sarah says:

    This looks delicious. I’ve never grilled whole slabs on pineapple before. Love it!

    1. Sarah says:

      I love the look of the whole slabs! Maybe it’s more rustic? 🙂

  4. Oh man- I LOVE grilled pineapple but always forget about it!! This sounds sooo delicious.
    Also, I’m not sure if the long dark spells or the long daylight would be harder- but Alaska sounds hard lol. Super gorgeous though!!

    1. Sarah says:

      Thanks so much, Sarah! The long daylight was great so long as you didn’t have to wake up for anything the next day 🙂 I do miss it there!

  5. Oh I love grilled pineapple. Addition of lime and honey oh that caramelization makes it just perfect.

    I adore pineapple but always seem to eat fresh sliced. My mouth is watering while reading this recipe. Will try this immediately and pass it on to my son who lives on Kauai
