Magical Grilled Peaches

I wish I wrote down what Rob said when he first tried these grilled peaches. I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to photograph them since it was a crazy (simple) concoction I put together. However, they were pretty with their grill marks and I left Rob with a peach half as I photographed the others.

It may have been something like: “OH MY GOD. THESE ARE THE MOST DELICIOUS THINGS I HAVE EVER EATEN.” I am paraphrasing but Rob never controls his positive adjectives. If he had his way, this recipe would be “Magical Incredible Grilled Peaches”.

Magical Grilled Peaches

In any case, these were delicious peaches. I was lusting grilled peaches after seeing this beautiful post and pulled out my latest (not-so-secret) weapon in the kitchen. A mix of melted coconut oil, Sweet Mesquite Seasoning and a touch of coconut sugar was slathered on firm yet ripe peaches and then grilled to perfection. Spicy, salty, sweet and juicy. It is a bit reminiscent of fresh mango spears with chile and salt and I could see this working well with pineapple, too, once local peach season subsides.

Looking for another grilled peach idea? How about this fun spin on Grilled Peach Melba aka Grilled Peaches with a Sweet Raspberry Sauce. Happy End of Summer!

I am sharing this with Simple and In Season.

Magical Grilled Peaches

2 peaches, washed, halved and pitted (works best with freestone peaches)
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp Kirkland Sweet Mesquite Seasoning (this could be a reasonable copycat recipe with the addition of some mesquite or try a substitute with chile flakes, salt and mesquite powder), or to taste
1/2 tsp coconut sugar

1. In a small dish, combine the melted coconut oil with the mesquite seasoning. Use a brush to paint it on the cut-side of the peach. Sprinkle with coconut sugar and press down if needed to get it to stick.

2. Heat your BBQ grill to medium-high. Place the peaches on the grill, cut-side down and grill for 2 minutes. Flip and continue to grill for 6-8 minutes, or until tender.

Eat as-is, add to a salad or serve with banana soft-serve ice cream.

Serves 2.

  1. Sounds really interesting – grilled peaches are heavenly and your tasting seasonings sound like they would not be out of place in an interesting bowl of salad – I tried a grilled peach salad last summer but wasn’t convinced by the star anise in it but this might suit me better (though I am not familiar with mesquite)

  2. Yes, these were so good they were truly transcendental.

  3. We have to get a grill soon. I miss grilled fruit!!

  4. I made grilled peaches today too, but I’ve never made them before so I just used butter. I’ll be writing about it tomorrow on theadventuresofnutrigirl.wordpress.com. I’m looking forward to grilling them and mixing it into a salad with some spring mix, cucumber, and bacon. Maybe some bocconcini or feta? What do you think?

  5. These peaches do sound magical, especially with the mesquite!

  6. What a great idea using Mesquite seasoning! I love grilled peaches.

    Ahahahaha that made me laugh ;p I have never tried this, but I love the sound of the sweet, salty & smoky combo. Insane!

  13. […] summer, weRob did a lot of grilling. One of our favourite discoveries were Magical Grilled Peaches. We have been eagerly waiting for local peaches to remake them. Once we snagged a few peaches […]

  14. […] It’s like a mini peach cobbler! Halve the peaches, take the pit out, spread on a little sauce, and let grill for a few minutes. While this recipe doesn’t call for it, I recommend placing a dollop of ice cream in the middle and spreading some pie crumbles on top. YUM. […]
