Grilled Pinapple “the totally tropical taste”

There’s a cocktail called Dark ‘N’ Stormy which is apparently Bermuda’s national drink. It is served in a tall glass and made with dark rum and ginger beer served over ice with a slice of lime. This dessert, made by Erika, combines rum, ginger and lime with pineapple and chilli for an extra kick. It is definitely a holiday dessert with a taste of the Caribbean! You could cook it on a barbeque (no one takes pudding to a barbeque). You could take a pile of these either skewered with wooden sticks or individually wrap the marinated pineapple chunks in foil parcels and just throw them on the grill after the veggie sausages and Portabella mushrooms are done. Summer has finally arrived you can stuff your Lilt, this is the ‘totally tropical taste’ I’m interested in…

Serves 6

  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  •  2 tbsps of rum
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 mild red chilli
  • Mint leaves to garnish
  1. Peel, core and chop the pineapple into long, chunky slices (you should get 12 slices from one medium pineapple).
  2. Marinade pineapple for at least one hour, then grill or griddle.
