Relive that Hawaiian vacation with caramelized pineapple at home. In just 15 minutes, you can sit down to a simple, tropical treat. Start with fresh pineapple, cored and cut into half-moons or halved canned pineapple rings. Melt a pat of butter and some brown sugar in a skillet, then add the pineapple and cook, about five minutes per side, until the pineapple is tender and caramelized. Top each serving with a scoop of store-bought coconut sorbet, and spoon a little of the brown sugar-butter sauce on top. Take a bite and close your eyes, and you just might hear the sound of calm, lapping waves.

How to Make It

Step 1

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sugar and cook, stirring, for 1 minute (the butter and sugar will remain separated).

Step 2

Add the pineapple and cook, swirling the pan, until the pineapple is tender and the sauce is smooth, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Serve the pineapple with the sorbet and drizzle with the sauce.
