Watermelon on the Grill!!

Updated: Jul 7, 2020

Lord Honey, two of my summertime favorites--watermelon and grillin' makes a yummy combination. If y'all have never tried grilled fruit, then my "Grilled Watermelon w/Tequila-Lime Sauce" is the perfect recipe to start with. And if some of y'all are into grilling your fruit, then this is a great recipe to add to your list. Trust me, either way, this sweet refreshin' bite of caramelized watermelon with a kick of tequila, zing of lime, and the sweetness and crunch of coconut cream and toasted coconut will impress at your next cookout.

Grilled Watermelon

Ingredients:

12-watermelon triangle slices (if your watermelon makes more, just increase sauce)

1-TBSP olive oil

½-tsp salt

1-TBSP tequila

½-cup cream of coconut

2-limes, zested and juiced

Garnish:

1-cup shredded coconut, toasted, (see tip)

Directions:

· Lay the watermelon slices on a sheet pan, brush each side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.

· In a mixing bowl place, the tequila, cream of coconut, lime juice and zest; mix together and set a side.

Tip: To toast coconut, preheat oven to 350°, sprinkle coconut on sheet tray and place in oven. Bake for 2 mins, remove from oven and toss the coconut; return to oven, when it gets golden brown its done, make sure to watch it closely so it doesn't burn.
