Grilled Pina Colada Pineapple

You've got the grill fired up~ you might as well grill dessert as well!

1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1 3-4 lb. pineapple, peeled
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup dark rum
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
Vanilla Ice Cream

 Toast coconut in a small heavy skillet over medium heat until golden.

Stir together remaining ingredients in a shallow dish and add pineapple in 1 layer, turning to coat evenly.  Marinate, turning occasionally, 30 minutes.

Oil grill rack.  Grill pineapple (reserve marinade), covered, turning once, until grill marks appear and pineapple is heated through, about 4 minutes.  Serve with marinade and sprinkle with toasted coconut.
Add a nice scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream.
 This would be pretty to serve in a nice tropical glass!
