Grilled Strawberries

Grilled Strawberries

By: Co+op

Summer berries take on a hint of smoke from the grill and a little drama from the sear marks. These are fun to serve on the skewer and enjoy with just a sprinkle of crunchy sugar.

Recipe Information

Total Time: 45 minutes; 10 minutes active

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 pound strawberries, rinsed and patted dry
  • 4 wooden skewers, soaked in water
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter

  • 4 teaspoons turbinado sugar

Preparation

  1. Hull the berries, then skewer from the stem end to the tip, dividing the berries between the four skewers.

  4. Place the skewers on the grill and sear over high heat, just until marked and slightly softened, about 2 minutes per side.

Serving Suggestion

Add to a green salad or a bowl of vanilla ice cream.
