  • 1 fresh pineapple
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Start by cutting off the green top. Next, remove skin and core (see my note below for a tool recommendation).
  2. Slice the pineapple into rings, then each ring in half. You can also cut it into spears or just rings. I prefer to cut it into half rings because it’s easy to flip them on the grill.
  3. In a medium bowl, melt butter. Add brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir until sugar dissolves.
  4. Arrange pineapple slices on a plate and brush each one with butter mixture.
  5. Grill on hot grill or grill pan for 2 to 3 minutes, on each side, until golden brown.
  6. Serve right away.

Recipe Notes

  • I highly recommend a pineapple corer and slicer tool. You can find a ton on Amazon or any major retailers. It’s super helpful and you don’t have to deal with the brown dots after cutting of the skin.
  • Serve it with vanilla ice cream, berries and mint or eat it plain, right away. It’s a fun way to enjoy this tropical fruit!
