Grilled Pears

  • Preparation 15 MIN
    Cooking 6 MIN
  • Servings 4
Cooking pears on the grill concentrates their natural sugars and intensifies their taste. By giving them an added toss in honey beforehand, when the fruit halves hit that heat, they caramelize to a perfect golden hue. All that’s left is to ladle on the silky Marsala (a sweet Sicilian wine) sabayon and serve.



  1. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high. Oil the grate.
  2. On a large plate, drizzle the lemon juice onto the pears and coat with the honey.
  3. Grill the fruit, cut side down, for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and continue cooking for 2 minutes or until tender to the tip of a knife.


Halved and pitted peaches and plums are also perfect for grilling.
