This is my own combination of desserts I've had in Hawaii and a Japanese steakhouse. It's delicious, impressive, and easy to prepare ahead for quick cooking at the last minute. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack at about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Slice the top and bottom off the pineapple. Cut into quarters and remove the core from each piece. Lay each section skin side down and, using a sharp knife, separate the fruit along the skin, allowing the fruit to rest on the skin for presentation. Cut the fruit into slices for easy eating. Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle each section with 2 tablespoons each of brown sugar and coconut.
  3. Broil until the coconut is toasted, about 5 minutes.

As the writer of this recipe, I just want to point out some errors in the editing. 6 inches from the heat source is WAY too close and that's why people are getting burnt coconut! I'd say 12-15 inches, depending on your oven. Also, the vanilla ice cream is a key ingredient that got bumped into the description. It's not the same without it!

Really good. I'm not sure I would like to have this for a dessert, though. It just seems like a really quick, tasty snack. My 4 year old loved it. He doesn't usually eat pineapple, but had quite a few slices of this. This really hits the spot if you are wanting something sweet, but don't really want to bake anything.

The coconut burnt well before 5min was up, so I pulled it out early. I was expecting the brown sugar to crisp up...no such luck. I won't make it again. The fresh pineapple was better with it's natural sweetness.
