#CookoutWeek 2018 is here! During the next week, I am joining over 50 blogger friends to celebrate summer by posting delicious cookout-themed recipes, including my recipe today for cinnamon brown sugar grilled pineapple parfait. If you love grilling, frozen treats, picnics, berries, s’mores, campfire meals, and other summer goodies… you are in the right place!

I’m starting off the week with a dessert. Pineapple is one of my family’s favorite fruits. Sometimes, though, it can be a bit tart, as can many fruits. I’ve always heard of grilling pineapple but have never done it before. When given the choices of butter for Chef Shamy I instantly knew I wanted to use the Honey Butter Cinnamon and Brown Sugar on pineapple to make a cinnamon brown sugar grilled pineapple parfait.
If I say so myself, it was a good choice. The sweetness of the butter balanced the tartness of the pineapple. While the grilled pineapple is delicious on it’s own, topping a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream makes a light summertime dessert that is the perfect way to end a cookout.
Some living arrangements don’t allow for an outdoor gas or charcoal grill and for that reason, I made these on my cast iron grill pan. It worked well and I achieved the desired grill marks.
More cookout recipes
- 8 slices fresh pineapple
- 16 tablespoons Chef Shamy Honey Butter with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar, softened
- Vanilla ice cream
- Using a stovetop grill pan heat to high.
- While grill pan heats up, smear one tablespoon of Chef Shamy honey butter with cinnamon and brown sugar on one each side of each slice of fresh pineapple.
- Place slices on grill. Grill until grill marks form and pineapple starts to caramelize. Flip to other side and repeat.
- Remove from grill and allow to cool.
- Slice pineapple into bite sized pieces and serve over one or two scoops of ice cream.
The long and short of it is, if you are going to use it up it is easier to use at room temperature. If you are going to have it around for 6 months, definitely refrigerate between uses. That will give you a longer shelf life and a fresher taste. But the quality and flavor (like any butter) degrades over time once opened. Learn more about Chef Shamy through this link.
