BBQ GRILLED WATERMELON
WITH SMOKED HONEY
Serves: 4 | Prep time: 2 min | Cook time: 3-5 mins
Ok… we admit it, watermelon on the BBQ does sound weird but trust us, it works. Through the magic of BBQ, the texture changes a little and the char adds an interesting smoky flavour.
Alana has upped the smokiness with some of the famous Blend Smoked Honey. There’s also a chilli version of the smoked honey if you like things a bit spicy. The honey adds a little bit of extra sweetness and allows the watermelon to caramelise.
Try serving the watermelon and smoked honey with a good quality lemon sorbet on the side.

¼ watermelon, cut into small triangle pieces
Blend Smoked Honey
5 sprigs of thyme, tied together
Preheat the BBQ grill to a high heat.
Gently insert a skewer into the end of each watermelon triangle. Using the thyme, dip it into the honey and brush the honey over the watermelon.
Place the watermelon skewers onto the hot grill and grill each side until you see the scorch marks. Remove from the heat.
Serve warm watermelon with extra honey drizzled over.
