Grilled Pineapple Skewers with Coconut Caramel Sauce

Yum
I saw this recipe in so many places... that it was like a big hint to try it.  I first saw the recipe on in Everyday with Rachael Ray Magazine.  Then I saw it on the Chew show with Curtis Stone actually showing how to cook it.  Well, I am glad I took all the hints because it was fresh, fun and fantastic!  My kids decided to take it to the next level by serving it with vanilla ice cream.  Yes... it was a very good idea. :)


 Ingredients

Coconut caramel sauce
½ cup sugar

2Tbs water
1 cup unsweetened, heavy coconut cream 

Pineapple skewers
1 pineapple, peeled, cored, cut into cubes
1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted 



Garnishes:2/3 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
 


Directions:


Directions to make the coconut caramel sauce:
On medium heat in a small saucepan, stir the sugar and two tablespoons of water together.  Simmer and swirl around in pan until golden brown.  About 8 minutes.   Then add coconut cream and stir until sauce thickens. About 5 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat and pour it into a serving bowl.

Directions to prepare the pineapple skewers and toasted coconut garnish:
 Sprinkle the coconut on a baking sheet.  Heat in oven on broil for a minute or two until toasted. Take off of pan and allow to cool on plate. 


Cut and core pineapple into large chunks. Then skewer pineapple.  Heat grill pan on medium-high heat then brush with melted butter. Grill pineapple a few minutes on each side until you get grill marks. 

To serve place grilled pineapple skewers on plate, drizzle with caramel sauce and garnish with toasted coconut.

    1. If you put a can of coconut milk into the fridge for about 30 minutes and then take it out without shaking it... the coconut cream floats to the top of the can. You can then scoop it out and use it. That's what I did at least.
