Dessert: Grilled Pineapple and Nectarines
1 pineapple, peeled and cored.
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Juice of 1/2 lime
250 ml mascarpone cheese
3 tbsp icing sugar
1 vanilla bean
White (store bought) meringue
Really is as simple as it sounds. Just cut the pineapple into about 1cm thick slices, the half the nectarines and remove the pit. Later, we did the same recipe with peaches (clingstone) which actually was just as good!
Mix the oil and lime juice, and brush the fruit all over. Grill the pineapple and nectarines just about 3 to 4 minutes on medium heat. You should turn the pineapple rings once during the grilling, but you don't need to touch the nectarines.
I served the pineapple and grilled nectarine together along with a mascarpone topping made by mixing the mascarpone cheese, icing sugar, cinnamon, and the seeds from the fresh vanilla bean. Break and crumble the meringue pieces over top.
Pairs Well With
After we had been in France for about a year, we moved to a place with a nice garden and lots of room for a BBQ. I hadn't grilled on a BBQ for about 5 years, so I started basically trying to do everything on the grill. This was the first dessert I tried. So, so good!
