Barbecued Tequila and Coriander Pineapple

    1 hour 20 mins

    This is an out of the ordinary side dish that always impresses guests. It's a delicious and refreshing accompaniment to barbecued meat. You can also thread pieces of the marinated pineapple on skewers with chicken or pork for kebabs. The marinade can be made into a spicy sauce by bringing to the boil in a saucepan and cooking until it is thick and syrupy.

    I think it's a decent recipe and something different for sure. That said, I used half the amount of chipotle pepper and had people who felt it was too spicy. I served the warm pineapple with vanilla bean ice cream and put raw sugar on the pineapple as it grilled. I personally liked it.  -  26 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I use half the powdered chipotle pepper. It will be hot enough, and still very enjoyable.  -  21 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
