  • 1 pineapple cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce Frank's Red Hot, Cholula or Sriracha, to taste
  • cinnamon to taste (about 1 teaspoon)
  • cilantro chopped, to garnish


  • In a small dish, mix together sesame oil, lime juice, and hot sauce. Brush the pineapple with the mixture.
  • Sprinkle both sides of the pineapple with cinnamon.
  • On a very hot grill, grill pineapple wedges for 3-4 minutes on each side, just long enough to get a little color.
  • Squeeze fresh lime on top and garnish with cilantro.


* To make this recipe indoors, cook pineapple on a baking tray under broil for about 4 minutes per side.
