    Grilled nectarines with Cointreau glaze, hazelnuts and ice cream

    Hi all,

    I decided it was time to cook dessert on my grill. I'm grilling nectarines halves, covered with a nice glaze consisting of Cointreau (orange liqueur) and honey. I serve it with roasted hazelnuts, orange clove filets and ice cream. It's so good, it's silly.

    You can taste the Cointreau, and I match it up with the orange cloves. Also, the hazelnuts add finesse. The ice cream in the picture is Ben & Jerrys Caramel Sutra, but use whatever you have at home.

    Serves: 4

    6 nectarines
    2 oranges
    0.4 cups hazel nuts

    1 tbsp honey
    2 tbsp Cointreau

    Cut the nectarines in half. Whisk the glaze together in a small bowl. Grill the nectarine halves with the flat side up. Apply the glaze on all nectarine halves as soon as they are placed on the grill. Sear them for 5 minutes at 400° F. In the meantime, roast the hazelnuts in a dry frying pan. Let them cool off. Cut out filets of the orange cloves, and serve it all in a bowl. Start with the ice cream, then nectarine halves and orange clove filets, and finally the hazelnuts.

      I think it involves a looooong plane ride. Or an even longer boat ride.

      I was afraid of that!

    Looks awesome as always.


      Wow man, great job! Makes ice cream healthy, at least that what I would tell myself.

        Ha ha, spot on! Healthy is what I'm all about :-)

      I knew this thread was yours by the title before I saw your name. Always elevating the grilling.

      The dessert looks great, and I love that karamel sutra


        A very fine cook, sir! Here, in Alaska, most of our produce(especially fruit) is inferior, because of shipping versus ripeness, etc. When I see a cook, such as yours, I turn green with envy...lol
