Grilled Pistachio Crusted Pineapple with Ice Cream

pistachio crusted pineappleWith the warmer weather finally here, we’re starting to grill outside more for meals. I wanted to make a fun dessert to celebrate spring – and wanted to grill the dessert with the rest of the food! The recipe itself is two ingredients, three if you count the ice cream.

1 pineapple, cored and outside removed
1 1/4 cups finely ground pistachios
ice cream of choice

Grind up the pistachios with a mortar and pestle. I had to deshell my pistachios first, but you can buy without the shells. Place them on a flat surface. Slice up the pineapple, removing the core and the outsides. Roll each piece of pineapple into the nuts until covered. Grill on each side for 4 minutes. Carefully remove from the grill and serve with a scoop of ice cream. Enjoy! Serves 6.
