1. Heat oven to 450º and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, toss the pineapple, sugar, oil, ginger, lime zest, 1 tsp sea salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, allspice, and cayenne until well combined. Stir in red onions.

3. Spread pineapple mixture onto the sheet pan in one layer. Nestle sausages among the pineapple mixture. Roast until fruit is caramelized and sausages are browned and cooked through, about 30 minutes. Half way through baking, flip the sausages and toss the pineapple mixture.

4. Pull pan out of the oven and garnish with cilantro or parsley and serve.  Enjoy!
