Grilled Tequila Pineapple
Just in case you thought tequila was only good for cocktails, it actually makes a wonderful marinade for fruit. The pineapple rings are easy to grill (easy to grab and flip with tongs), and they go well with any Caribbean or tropical-themed meal. When you grill the tequila-soaked pineapple rings, you get a rich, smoky flavor with a hint of sweetness from the fruit and brown sugar.
- 1 ripe pineapple, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices, or canned pineapple slices, drained
- 1/2 cup tequila or orange juice
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
Marinate the pineapple slices in the tequila for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Place on a grill directly over hot coals and grill for about 2 minutes on each side, until lightly browned.
Sprinkle with brown sugar and serve immediately.
