Tropical Broiled Pineapple Boats

Directions:                    

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. On a small baking sheet, spread the coconut flakes and almonds. Bake until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally for even toasting. Remove from oven, reserve.
  3. Change oven setting to broil.
  4. Cut off top and bottom of pineapple, cut into 8 equal wedges. Remove the core and gently cut away the skin from each wedge, leaving the skin in one piece. Reserve skin.
  5. Return pineapple spear to skin; cut pineapple flesh into 1/3-inch thick slices.
  6. Arrange pineapple wedges, on skin, on a baking sheet, brush with agave nectar. Broil until lightly caramelized, approximately 8 minutes. Transfer each spear to a plate; garnish with 2 tablespoons of the coconut mixture and one lime wedge.
