“grill”, instantly puts smiles on the faces of adults and children alike. Whether you
enjoy charcoal or gas cooking, grilled fruit is an excellent alternative to meats and
vegetables and makes a beautiful alternative to heavy desserts.
Grilled Fruit Kabobs
*your choice of fruit, threaded onto a kabob, cut length-wise, or simply chopped and
placed in an aluminum foil basket
MARINADE: lemon juice, honey, butter or coconut oil, cinnamon
*reserved pineapple juice, brown sugar, sea salt, shredded coconut (optional)
In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of lemon juice with 4 tablespoons of melted butter or
coconut oil. Soak wooden skewers in water while making marinade.
From this stage of the recipe, you get to decide how much and what flavors, you add
to your fruit marinade.
To the marinade base I add:
1/4 cup pineapple juice, honey to taste, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar for caramelization,
and a dash of cinnamon. Slowly cook marinade on the stove until thickened, but do
not let it boil.
Sprinkle fruit with a dash of cinnamon, baste with marinade, place on aluminum foil,
grill on low to medium for approximately 5 minutes, then place directly on the grill for
last-minute grill marks. Continue to baste until fruit caramelizes. Plate and sprinkle
with a dash of sea salt and toasted coconut. Enjoy!
