Grilled Pineapple Skewers

These are the perfect ending to a nice dinner on the grill.  A no-fuss dessert with a surprising kick.  As you take each bite, you get subtle hints of the marinade - the lemon, the ginger, the chili.  Feel free to play around with the marinade to suit your personal tastes!


1 pineapple, skin removed and cut into 1/8's, lengthwise
3/4 cup water (about 175 mL)
1/2 cups sugar (about 100g)
1 in piece of ginger sliced (about 2 1/2 centimeters)
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 hot chili, sliced


1. Bring all ingredients to a boil then simmer until it is almost the consistency of a syrup, remove from heat and cool.
2. Strain and cover pineapple stick.  Marinate in refrigerator overnight.
3. Before grilling, soak wooden skewers for 20 minutes. 
4. Skewer pineapples lengthwise and cook on grill over medium-high heat until they caramelize on the outside.  Cool and serve.


  1. This looks delicious and perfect for grilling weather ahead. I'll probably try it with and without the chili.

  2. Great idea!! Let me know how it turns out! (I am a chili fiend!)
