What's on the Grill #28

Tonight's dinner was pineapple themed. For the main course, it was drunken salmon and grilled pineapple. For desert, there is nothing better than grilled fruit. By continuing the pineapple theme, I whipped up grilled pineapple topped with fresh blueberries, creme fraiche and a butter rum sauce. It is incredibly easy and incredibly good.

Creme fraiche is somewhere between sour cream and heavy whipping cream. Around here, we can pick it up at Dorthy Lane Market. I have yet to see it at Kroger or Meijer. For the butter rum sauce, I mix together 1/4 cup of butter, 2 tablespoons of rum and around a half teaspoon of cinnamon. I heat it up on the grill next to whatever I am grilling while being careful not to slosh to much over open flame....or BOOM. Try it sometime...the sauce, not the boom.

so you do eat blueberries, just nothing with external seeds?

Mike said...

Yes Anne, I eat blueberries. Thanks for the inquiry. BTW, it is not just an issue of internal/external seeds...even though you have framed the issue in a way I have never thought of it. Let me just sum it up...I do not like the taste and texture of strawberries!

We were planning on having strawberries with all of the meals next weekend. At least Zoe will be happy.

anne said...

so you do like raspberries and blackberries?

Mike said...

Why the hell is this so interesting to you two?

Tim - You would do that!

Anne - Blackberries - yes, Raspberries, not so much. Here, it is not an internal/external seed issue. It is simply what I like.
