How to Make Thai Grilled Pineapple

No ratings yet

This Thai grilled pineapple makes easy and simple treats. Sliced pineapples are marinated and basted with sweet coconut milk for a smoky and fruity dessert.

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 30 mins


  • 1 can coconut milk
  • ½ cup brown sugar, loosely packed
  • pinch salt
  • 1 pineapple

For Optional:

  • 1 tbsp coconut extract, baking type, or 2 tbsp coconut flavored liqueur
  • 10 wooden skewers, or stainless steel skewers


  1. Slice off the top, skins, and sides of the pineapple with a serrated knife.

  2. Holding the pineapple firmly, slice it into half in a downward direction, then in half again to create 4 sections.

  3. Lay these sections on the cutting board. Now, picking up one section at a time, slice off ⅓ to ½-inch of the hard inner core, always cutting downward.

  4. Leave some core in order to keep a little of the fiber, and also to make the pieces more stable and easier to skewer.

  5. Finish cutting the pineapple by slicing each section in half again. Should have 8 pieces.

  6. Slice these thicker ones in half once again.

  7. Place the pineapple pieces in a flat-bottomed bowl for marinating.

  8. Place coconut milk in a saucepan over medium heat. When the coconut milk is warm, making sure not to boil, add ½ cup loosely packed brown sugar, plus a pinch of salt. Stir well.

  9. When sugar has dissolved completely, remove from heat.
  10. Stir in coconut extract.

  11. Pour ½ the coconut marinade into a dipping bowl and place in the refrigerator until ready to eat. Pour the remaining marinade over the pineapple pieces.

  12. Brush grill with a little cooking oil, then push a wooden skewer into the end of each pineapple piece and place on the grill. Barbecue 5 to 10 minutes each side, or until the pineapple turns bright yellow and has beautiful grill marks.

  13. Serve with dipping sauce and enjoy.
