Pineapple Delight

People don't eat pineapple like they used to! When you heat thick pineapple slices in a pan with a bit of butter, the sugary juices caramelize to create something truly special.

Ingredients: Print Ingredients

- 1 pineapple
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons golden brown sugar
- 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
- 1 pint champagne sorbet (or if you're in the mood for creamy, use the best vanilla ice cream you can find)
- 2 tablespoons bittersweet chocolate shavings or chips


With a sharp knife, cut the leafy top off of the pineapple and slice the main body into 1-inch thick rings. With a paring knife, carefully remove the tough outer skin and inner core.

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the sugar. Place the pineapple rings in the skillet in a single layer and cook for 2-3 minutes, turning once, until the juices begin to caramelize into a golden brown color.

Place one pineapple ring on each serving plate. Place a scoop of sorbet into the middle of the ring; sprinkle with pomegranate seeds. Drizzle any remaining buttery sauce from the pan over the top. Finish with chocolate shavings.

Serves 4-6.
