Honey Orange Grilled Watermelon

…a tasty sweet and salty side that pairs great with spicy grilled meats.

As summer wanes, there’s still an abundance of fresh watermelons!  So grab yourself one and do some Honey Orange Grilled Watermelon “steaks.”  These really do not need a printed recipe… 

First, find yourself the best watermelon!  I’m a big fan of Bogue Sound Watermelons… but love others too.  Just whisk a little OJ into some local honey.  Cut the “steaks” in 1/2″ pieces. Place on hot grill and baste, briefly cooking on each side to get a light char.  That’s it… unless you want to take it up to a “more better” level by scattering with some crunchy locally sourced.  If you don’t have any in your area, flakey Maldon Sea Salt and some freshly ground black pepper will do!  This salt isn’t required but is great to have on hand, and readily available now in many places, so put on your shopping list and add to your pantry.

Tasty right off the grill… or also chilled after grilling too!
