Grilled Watermelon

After the entree is has been made on the grill but the remaining heat to work on a different kind of dessert!


  • Olive oil to coat the grill
  • Watermelon triangles
  • Jalapeno peppers
  • Alderwood Smoked Salt , fine grain


  1. Grill should be hot around 350 degrees. Using a grill brush, brush the grill clean removing any residue from prior grilling. Fold a paper towel into quarters. Pour a bit of olive oil on the paper towel to fully dampen one side. Using tongs, to hold on to it, place the oil side on the grill and push the oil-soaked paper towel along the grill to coat. DO NOT SPRAY ANYTHING ON THE GRILL especial while it's hot!

  2. Place the prepared jalapeno peppers on the grill and close the lid. Allow to cook 3 minutes on each side until blistered. Remove and allow to cool and slice into thin rings.

  3. If needed coat the grill again with the oil-soaked paper towel.

  4. Place the watermelon triangles on the grill and sprinkle a very small amount of smoked salt. Allow the watermelon to grill for 1 ½ to 2 minutes to form grill marks (may or may not be black charred); then turn and allow to grill 1 ½- 2 minutes on the opposite site. Only salt one side of the watermelon. Remove from grill and serve with sliced jalapenos.
