Broiled Pineapple with Lime Sour Cream and Macadamias
This twist on broiled grapefruit comes together in no time, especially if you buy a pineapple that’s already peeled and cored; they’re often sold in the refrigerator case of the grocery store.
Serves 2 to 3
1 large ripe pineapple, peeled, cored, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rings
3 Tbs. granulated sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
1 Tbs. fresh lime juice
1/3 cup chopped macadamia nuts (preferably salted), toasted
Position an oven rack 4 inches from the broiler element and heat the broiler on high.
Arrange the pineapple rings in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Blot dry with paper towels and then sprinkle with the sugar. Broil until the sugar is melted and browned, about 5 minutes, rotating the baking sheet as necessary for even broiling.
Meanwhile, mix the sour cream and lime juice in a small bowl.
Transfer the pineapple to serving plates, top with a dollop of the sour cream, and sprinkle with the macadamia nuts.
