- 2 limes
- 6 tbsp Pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably dark for its robust taste)
- 1 watermelon, cut into wedges, skin on
- 1 pineapple, cut into wedges lengthways, skin on
- 4 peaches, halved and stones removed
- Place the watermelon, pineapple and peaches into a large dish or tray.
- Finely grate the zest of one lime and combine with the maple syrup and the juice of the lime. Pour over the fruit and toss lightly to coat.
- Make sure the barbecue is hot with no trace of flame.
- Place the pineapple and watermelon slices onto the barbecue and sear for a few seconds on each side, turning with tongs. The aim is to mark the wedges with griddle lines, but not to cook the flesh, so the barbecue (or griddle pan) must be extremely hot.
- Remove the fruit slices from the barbecue and wrap in tin foil. Leave on the side of the barbecue for around 20 minutes.
- Whilst cooking, sear the peaches and add to the foil parcel for the final 8-10 minutes.
- Add the fruit to a platter or bowl and serve warm.
