Grilled Melon and Prosciutto Skewers

Somethings grilled are weird at first, and this falls under that category. Some foods should stay cold and some foods can be grilled and be very good. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about these grilled melon and prosciutto skewers at first. However, what the grill did to the cantaloupe and honeydew was phenomenal. As my roommate put it, it tasted as if I doused the fruit in sugar.

The heat from the grill caramelized the cantaloupe and honeydew. Plus the charcoal/smokey flavor? You may be a little weary of it, but trust me, it’s good. Then you have the prosciutto, which never disappoints.

I’ve also discovered a love for the little melon baller I bought. It is like the absolute cutest way to cut/consume cantaloupe/honeydew/watermelon… how have I gone so long without one? Don’t know.

I made a balsamic reduction to drizzle over these grilled melon and prosciutto skewers, because anything that can be drizzled in balsamic should be. Don’t know how to make a balsamic reduction? It’s incredibly simple. This article right here is where I learned how to make it.


Grilled Melon and Prosciutto Skewers

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Honeydew, balled
  • 1/2 Cantaloupe, balled
  • 5-6 slices of Prosciutto
  • 1/4 c. Balsamic Vinegar

Instructions

  1. Assemble your skewers. I included 3 balls of cantaloupe, 3 balls of honeydew and 1 slice prosciutto.
  2. Fire up your grill and grill the skewers for about 10 minutes, or until the melons start becoming darker in color.
  3. While they're grilling, make your balsamic reduction.
  4. Once cooked, drizzle the reduction and enjoy!

  • ok... you guys... kombucha margaritas!!! I combined two of my favorite things (kombucha + tequila, duh) for #nationalmargaritaday and the result was this guava jalapeño margarita and possibly one of the best margs I’ve ever made.
