Pineapple with Macadamia Crunch
 
 
1   whole pineapple, ripe  
1 cup    macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped  
1/3 cup    light brown sugar, packed  
4 Tbs    unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled  
1 pinch    salt  
 
1 Preheat the broiler to very hot.
2 Cut off the top of the pineapple. Cut a slice off the bottom to stabilize the pineapple, then peel from top to bottom with a sharp knife. Cut out any "eyes" in the fruit. Cut into 1/2 -inch-thick slices. Using a small cookie or biscuit cutter, cut the core out of each slice. Chill until ready to serve.
3 In a small bowl, toss together the macadamia nuts, sugar, butter and salt.
Saute Prep
1 In a small pan, saute' the pineapple until browned on each side. When hot, add the macadamia mixture to the pan and cook until sauce begins to bubble.
Broiler Prep
1 Place the pineapples on a baking sheet. Spoon macadamia mixture over the pineapple slices. Broil (not too close to the heat) until the topping is caramelized and bubbly, about 2 to 4 minutes. Serve hot.
