  • This works best on an outdoor grill. But it will work just as well on a grill pan. If you do not have access to either, you can try this in your oven, although you may not get the best grill patterns. 
  • You can serve it as a side dish with grilled pork or chicken. 
  • Grilled pineapple makes for an excellent dessert. Serve it with vanilla ice cream or caramel.
