Grilled Pineapple Spears with Chili Powder

This dish is a great accompaniment to grilled pork or fish. If you can, season the pineapple with piment d'Espelette, a chili powder from the Basque region of Spain. It can be purchased at specialty stores. Use sea salt as well for its distinctive flavor and texture.

  4. Grill the pineapple spears on each side until hot and grill marks form, 3-5 minutes.
  5. Transfer pineapple to a wide, shallow bowl. Sprinkle evenly with salt and chili powder.
