Recipe type: Appetizer
  • 8 pineapple rings
  • 1 c. dark rum
  • 1 c. coconut rum
  • 1½ c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 (10-oz.) bag sweetened coconut
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ c. coconut milk
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ½ c. powdered sugar
  1. Place pineapple rings in a medium bowl. Cover with rum and let soak for at least 1 hour. Drain and reserve rum. Pat pineapple dry.
  2. Place flour and coconut in 2 shallow bowls. In a third shallow bowl, whisk eggs and coconut milk together. Working one at a time, dip pineapple in flour, then egg mixture, then in coconut, pressing to coat.
  3. In a deep, heavy bottom pot, add enough oil to come 1-inch up sides. In batches, add pineapple and fry until golden, 1 minute per side. Remove using a slotted spoon and place on paper towel-lined plate.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and powdered sugar until no lumps remain. Add 2 tablespoons reserved rum and mix to combine. Add more rum as necessary to thin.
  5. Serve fried pineapple rings with sauce for dipping.
