  • 1 whole pineapple
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Cut off top, rind and bottom of pineapple; cut in quarters lengthwise and remove core. Slice each quarter into strips about 1/2 inch thick. Set aside.
  • To make glaze, melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the brown sugar and stir until melted.
  • Raise the heat to medium and stir in the orange juice and cinnamon. Let this reduce by 1/2—this should take about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let this cool about 10 minutes.
  • Place the pineapple strips in a baking dish—I used a jellyroll pan. Pour half of the cooled glaze on top of the pineapple and turn to coat. Reserve the remaining glaze for basting.
  • Heat your BBQ grill to medium heat. Grill pineapple on both sides making sure you have grill marks on both sides.
  • Baste with the reserved glaze and grill until the glaze is caramelized (do this on both sides).
  • Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
