Grilled fruits have such a delicious flavor that you can add them to virtually any dish! It is a quick and easy addition to any meal whether it is as an appetizer, side dish, or dessert (my favorite!). My favorite fruit to grill are P E A C H E S. You might have a hard time finding some peaches now since they are not in season but there are other fruits that you can grill before it gets too cold outside! Below are the recipes for these juicy grilled peaches and other grilled fruits as well. Enjoy!
GRILLED GOLDEN PEACHES:
Combine butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and a pinch of salt in a saucepan on medium-low heat. Whisk into a warm glaze.
Halve the peaches, brush glaze on peaches and grill face down.
Once removed from grill, add to bowl of vanilla ice cream. Drizzle with caramel sauce.
GRILLED PINEAPPLE WITH NUTELLA:
GRILLED BANANA SPLITS:
Cut a small piece off the curved side of 4 unpeeled bananas so they’ll sit level, then make a deep slit down the center of each through the peel; place on separate sheets of foil.
Open the slits and brush the inside of each banana with melted butter,
Sprinkle with sugar and 1 ounce chopped semisweet chocolate; fold up the foil.
Grill the packets over high heat until the chocolate melts, 6 to 8 minutes (don’t worry if the peel turns brown).
Open the peels and top the bananas with ice cream, whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry.
Mix 4 tablespoons melted butter, 1/4 cup light brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon each curry powder, cinnamon and vanilla extract, a pinch of salt and a splash of dark rum in a bowl.
Slice a pineapple in half lengthwise (keeping the top attached), then cut each half into 3 long wedges; cut out the core.
Place 2 wedges on a sheet of foil; brush with the spiced butter and fold up.
Repeat to make 2 more packets.
Grill over medium heat until the pineapple is soft and golden on the bottom, 15 to 20 minutes.
GRILLED PEARS (ADD TO SALAD):
For the dressing combine 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice, 2 table spoons of balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons of light agave nectar or honey, 1/4 teaspoon of grated ginger, a small pinch of salt and ground pepper to taste, and 6 tablespoons of olive oil.
Preheat a grill pan over medium heat.
Brush both sides of the pear slices with the salad dressing.
Grill the pears for 2 minutes on each side, remove and set aside and allow to cool.
