If you haven’t given your barbecue a scrub yet then do so, there is nothing that compares to the taste of freshly grilled food on a sunny day. When you hear the word barbecue, most people think of savory meals but you can just as well grill your desserts! Pineapple is a delicious fruit on its own, but if you let it caramelize for a few minutes on high heat, it lifts the whole taste experience to another level. This grilled pineapple is coated in a hot and sweet sriracha marinade that combines the earthiness of thyme, the sweetness of maple syrup, and the tangy, hot flavor of sriracha sauce.
