Chef's Note

I love serving grilled fruit in the summer: it’s full of flavor and easy to cook. The secret is in the timing, so start with the fruits that take longest: firm ones like apple, for instance. Medium cooking time for tender fruits, such as bananas, mangos and papayas. End with quick-cooking fruits, which often contain a lot of water: pineapple, peaches, pears… 

For a tropical touch, flambé with dark rum just before serving.


For 4 people

For the marinade
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) butter, melted
- 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
- 1 tbsp. honey or brown sugar
- You could also brush the fruit with maple syrup or sprinkle with brown sugar mixed with a pinch of nutmeg.

Cinnamon Yogurt Sauce
- 250 ml (1 cup) plain low-fat yogurt 2 tsp. brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- Or: sweeten the yogurt with white sugar and flavor with some chopped fresh mint.


Oil the grill well to keep the fruit from sticking.

Cut the fruit into large slices or wedges; brush with the marinade.

Cook the fruit over low heat and not directly over the flame, turning occasionally. Watch carefully: the cooking time is quite short. You want the fruit cooked but not falling apart or mushy. Remove when tender and caramelized.

Grilled fruit can be served on its own or with a yogurt sauce. To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients and refrigerate until needed.
