Spicy Glazed Pineapple

A ginger glaze that gets caramelized under the broiler adds a completely new dimension to sweet-tart pineapple. Feel free to try this technique on other firm sliced fruits such as mangoes, peaches, nectarines, grapefruit, or bananas. Serve with a fruit or coconut sorbet or granita.
