In Boulder, Colorado, Becky Gillespie completes a grilled meal with this light, refreshing dessert. "By the time we're done eating, the coals have cooled to the right temperature," she notes. "I brush the slices of pineapple and pound cake with a sweet sauce, toast them on the grill and top 'em with ice cream and convenient caramel sauce."
Years ago I found a grilled tilapia recipe in a seafood cookbook. The pineapple salsa with cilantro has a touch of spice and goes so well with the flaky, tender fish. —Beth Fleming, Downers Grove, Illinois
"I really enjoy making these special burgers with a surprise inside," writes Ann Couch of Halifax, North Carolina. The homemade sauce, with brown sugar, mustard and ketchup, makes these tropical grilled sandwiches even better.
We love these full-flavored kabobs and fix them often, even in winter. A sweet sauce is used to baste and later serve alongside the colorful combination of sausage, bacon, shrimp, vegetables and pineapple. —Gloria Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin
