2 - 4 servings
Melissa's Corporate Chefs
1 Vanilla Bean
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Water
1 teaspoon Unsalted Butter
4 Red Bananas or Manzano Bananas, ripe, peeled and sliced thick
2 South African Baby Pineapples peeled and cut into large cubes (about 2 cups)
2 tablespoons Dessert Sauce (use Chocolate Dessert)
Prepare BBQ grill.
Split vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds, pod, sugar, water and butter to a small sauce pot. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly and simmer for 2 minutes or until sugar dissolves.
Remove from heat. Place the fruit on skewers alternating bananas and pineapples. Baste with the vanilla sauce and grill until you get nice grill marks.
Garnish with the chocolate sauce and serve.
A scoop of vanilla bean ice cream goes great with this.
