Grilled Pineapple Sundae with Brown Sugar Lime Sauce

4 rounds of fresh pineapple, cored (about 3/4″ thick)

Vanilla Ice Cream

Brown Sugar Lime Sauce

1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon water
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons real butter
3 tablespoons cream

Directions:

Grill pineapple rings.  On outdoor grill cook each side 2-3 minutes or until golden brown grill marks occur, or on indoor grill/panini press for about 3-4 minutes.

For sauce mix together brown sugar, lemon juice, water and salt in small sauce pan.  Cook on medium heat until the mixture starts to boil.  Remove from heat and stir in butter until melted.  Add in cream and stir until smooth.  Serve immediately on sundaes.

To assemble sundaes, place a scoop of ice cream on top of grilled pineapple and drizzle with warm brown sugar lime sauce.

Note:  You can make the sauce up ahead of time and refrigerate – just warm on low heat (don’t boil) and add an additional teaspoon of cream if needed.
