How to make grilled watermelon?

To make this recipe you first need a ripe, juicy watermelon.

  1. Cut the watermelon into thick slices, approximately 1 to 2 centimetres thick. As this is a Sandía Fashion, you won’t have any problems with the small white seeds, so you can leave them in.
  2. Next, preheat your griddle to medium-high heat and make sure it’s nice and hot before you start.
  3. Place the watermelon slices directly on the hot griddle and cook for about 2 minutes on each side. The watermelon will begin to caramelise and acquire very appetizing grill marks.

Don’t worry if you see the watermelon soften a little, this is completely normal. Once the watermelon is ready, remove it from the griddle and place it on a plate.

Now comes the fun part: adding the feta cheese! Crumble some feta cheese on top of the warm watermelon slices. The salty, creamy feta cheese will contrast perfectly with the sweetness and juiciness of the watermelon.

If you want to take this recipe to the next level, you can add other ingredients to enhance the flavours even more. For example, you can add chopped fresh basil leaves, sliced black olives, a drizzle of olive oil or even a few drops of balsamic vinegar for an extra kick of flavour – the choice is yours!
