Spicy Glazed Pineapple

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.

  • 6Servings


  • 12 rings fresh pineapple
  • 6 Tbs. grapeseed oil
  • 1/4 cup. turbinado sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder


1. Preheat broiler. Spray broiler pan with cooking spray. Arrange pineapple rings in single layer (this may need to be done in batches).

2. Stir together remaining ingredients until combined, and brush each pineapple ring with glaze mixture.

3. Broil pineapple 3 minutes, until fruit begins to brown. Rotate tray, and broil 2 to 3 minutes more, or until each pineapple ring is caramelized.
