Grilled Spicy Watermelon

Transform watermelon from sweet to savoury with this mouth watering Thai-inspired sauce. Watermelon wedges are grilled until caramelized, drizzled with garlic chili sauce and garnished with cilantro. Serve as a side dish along with ribs, chicken or shrimp.

 Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons garlic chili sauce
  • pinch salt
  • 1 watermelon, medium sized
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
 Instructions

Preheat grill to high. In bowl, whisk together lime zest, juice, 3 tbsp (45 mL) of the honey, garlic chili sauce and salt.

Cut watermelon into 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick wedges. Lightly drizzle each side with remaining honey and place on grill. Grill until just browned, about 2 minutes per side. Place watermelon slices on a plate and drizzle with lime dressing. Garnish with cilantro.
