Ingredients

  • 8 watermelon wedges, 1-2 inches thick
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Maldon sea salt
  • 1 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Reduction Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled

Directions

Baste watermelon slices with extra virgin olive oil.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat, cleaning and oiling grates.

Place watermelon slices on to direct heat, leaving in place to get grill marks and a good caramelization. Grill for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side.

Remove from the grill and season with Maldon sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, drizzle with balsamic reduction and crumbled feta cheese.

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.
