Happy first day of summer to all you readers out there! And what’s a more perfect way of rining in the new season, than a gilled dessert recipe favorite?
I know you won’t be able to wait for the weekend to sink your teeth into this Grilled Pineapple with Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe, so I don’t blame you if it’s dessert for tonight. Enjoy!
- 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 4 slices fresh pineapple, about 1/2 inch thick each
- 1 teaspoon cracked dried green peppercorns or cracked black peppercorns
- 4 scoops vanilla bean ice cream
Making the glaze: In a small saucepan combine the glaze ingredients and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Keep the glaze warm or reheat when ready to serve.
Season both sides of the pineapple slices with the peppercorns. Grill over Indirect Medium heat until well marked, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Serve each pineapple slice with a scoop of ice cream and some of the glaze drizzled over the top.
