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.


  • 1 fresh pineapple
  • Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder


  1. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Peel pineapple; cut lengthwise into 6-8 spears. Slice off the core.
  3. Lightly coat pineapple with olive oil.
  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.
