  2. Place the hazelnuts into a small saucepan over medium heat; shake the pan until the nuts turn golden and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Mix the lemon juice, lemon zest, mascarpone cheese and honey in a bowl until well combined.
  3. Barbecue the pineapple slices on the preheated barbecue until the slices are lightly charred and the fruit is hot and juicy, about 3 minutes per side. Serve 2 slices per plate with a generous dollop of sweetened mascarpone cheese and a sprinkling of toasted hazelnuts on each serving.
