Grilled Nectarines

Playing up the flavors of sweet and savory, the prosciutto di Parma adds the perfect texture to the soft, grilled nectarines.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe organic nectarine
  • 2 thin slices of prosciutto di Parma
  • Drizzle of mosto cotto
  • Extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

Use a smoker or, if you have a Weber grill, dampen a few wood chips and place them on hot coals.  Close the lid and smoke the halved nectarines until soft and smoky, but not mushy for about 3-4 minutes. Place the prosciutto on top of the nectarines and drizzle with mosto cotto and olive oil.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
