Sweet & Spicy Grilled Cantaloupe

I love the summer time because of all of the bbq'n i get to indulge in after months and months of grueling waiting. The smell of smoke and chargrilled meats gets my mouth watering year after year, but I also love grilling summer fruits. Grilling fruits brings out the sweet flavors while also adding a wonderful smoky quality. Courtesy of our new friends over at Specialty Produce here in San Diego is this delicious Sweet & Spicy Grilled Cantaloupe Recipe. Enjoy!


  • very ripe cantaloupe
  • smoked paprika
  • honey


  1. Slice cantaloupe in 1/2" flat pieces.
  2. Sprinkle each side liberally with smoked paprika (not regular paprika).
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill cantaloupe slices 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from grill. Drizzle with honey. If grilling other foods, cook cantaloupe last.
