This is just an easy-peasy delicious BBQ recipe, more like a laundry list than an actual recipe. Grilling watermelon changes its texture, like it’s been baking in a pie for about an hour or so–still solid, but slightly softer, and a lovely flavour that’s enhanced by honey, to add some sweetness, and cinnamon for a flavour kick.
The above picture is me trying out what this one recipe suggested; adding salt to ease out some water, letting it drain, then rinsing and patting it with towels. To be quite honest, I wouldn’t really recommend this strategy, I’d just go straight to patting it with some paper towel first. The whole process didn’t really seem to make much of a difference…
4 large slices of watermelon
4 tbsp of runny honey
4 tsp of cinnamon
Heat up the BBQ on high. On each slice, sprinkle over one teaspoon of cinnamon, and then drizzle over one tablespoon of honey.
When the BBQ is ready, grill the watermelon cinammon and honey side down first, about five minutes and hopefully, some grill marks should appear (or the honey will start to blacken the edges). Flip over, and grill for another three to five minutes.
Remove from the grill when marks have appeared on both sides, and the watermelon is softened. Serve immediately with a scoop of ice-cream.
