Grilled Strawberry

Grilled strawberry is strawberry fruit baked by the application of dry heat over hot grill, with the fruit having its origin in Brittany, France. Strawberry is a bright red colored fruit, which is very well known in almost all parts of the world for its juicy texture, sweetness, and aroma. Strawberries are often grilled along with basil or food cake to make grilled strawberry kabobs, which are relished a lot as a dessert or snack. Grilled strawberries are often served with a topping of ice cream.    

 

 

Preparation Synopsis

The simplest grilled strawberry recipe suggests placing strawberries directly on the grill, while flipping them during grilling. Strawberries are grilled until slightly soft. Canola oil is brushed onto the grill grate before placing the strawberries onto it, so as to avoid the fruit from sticking to the grill. Strawberries can also be grilled after being coated with balsamic vinegar and rolled out in sugar.

 

 

Serving

  • Grilled strawberries pair very well with gingersnap meringue. A mix of sugar and grilled strawberry slices are topped with the meringue before being served in a martini glass. The meringue is prepared by beating egg whites, sugar, and a pinch of salt until stiff peaks are formed and then adding crushed gingersnap cookies to it.     
  • Grilled strawberries can also be served over ice cream, with topping of whipped cream and chocolate sauce.
