Chipotle grilled watermelon. Remember a few posts back when I mentioned I’m excited about BBQing? Well, this takes it to a whole new level. This grilled watermelon is full of flavour and can hold any spice you toss at it. Cumin? Sure! Steak spice? Why not?! Chipotle? Yes – my favourite!! Okay, let’s get cooking.

Ingredients

  • about 8 slices of watermelon (1 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons of canola oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon of chipotle chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

First, heat up the BBQ and ensure it’s nice and hot. Then, cut the watermelon into fast pizza like shapes, about 1 inch thick. Then, on a baking sheet or in a glass pan, drizzle with the oil and flip a few times to ensure they’re nicely coated. Next, sprinkle on the spices for nice even coverage.

Time to grill – using tongs, place the 8 watermelon triangles onto the grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side – on medium/high. Keep an eye on them, but they’re pretty hard to burn. Once you get some nice lines on them, about about 4 minutes, flip and cook the other side. I let them sit for the full 3-4 minutes per side and they turned out well.

If you give this chipotle grilled watermelon a try, you’ll have to let me know how it turned out. It’s one of the first fruits I’ve BBQ’d. You’d think that pineapple would be a natural starting point, but nope – watermelon it is, haha! Has any one tried other melons? Cantaloupe? Honeydew? I think I might give avocados a try and then makes some guacamole with the roasted avocados!

Okay – thanks for visiting and I’ll see you again soon. Bye!
