With Australia Day coming up, many of us will be having BBQ's and enjoying the outdoors. This dessert is perfect after a BBQ lunch or dinner, as it isn't too heavy and is really quick to put together – it's also sure to impress!


Ingredients (makes 8 Nectarine 1/2's)

  • 4 ripe Nectarines
  • 8 small scoops of good quality vanilla ice cream
  • Raspberries - to serve
  • pomegranate seeds - to serve
  • Mint - to serve
  • Maple syrup

Method

  1. Pre heat the BBQ grill and lightly spray a grill with oil. When hot, grill the nectarine halves for approximately 3-4 minutes each side until softened and warmed through
  2. Place onto a plate and top with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with maple syrup. Decorate the plate with raspberries, pomegranate seeds and mint

Notes... Choose nectarines that are ripe but not overly soft as you don't want them to fall apart when grilling. You can use honey instead of maple syrup if you wish
  • They look so yummy! My mind is now thinking how many other types of fruit could be used.

  • Yum, anything cooked on a barbecue tastes better. Love how the ice cream in the picture is drizzling/melting over the edges

  • Grilled nectarines are nice, but I think I prefer them grilled pear with cinnamon. We serve it with Greek yoghurt and some roasted pine nuts/ roasted almond shaving.

  • What a brilliant way to eat fruit! So simple yet delicious. I’m thinking of many different kinds of fruit I could grill up on the barbecue now. I’m excited

  • Nectarines are still plentiful in some areas -they are in SA anyway – they don’t keep like a lot of other fruit does so it’s an excellent way to use them…..I reckon you could try white peaches but a lot of them are “cling stone” so getting suitable size pieces may be difficult.

  • Lovely dessert – pity nectarine season has already ended. Only those of us who grow our own would be aware of this, I guess. So maybe some deep blood red plums will do instead.
