How To Make Grilled Fruit
Start with some simple fruit to grill. Pineapple, peaches, and bananas are perfect. Make sure your grill grate is pretty clean, otherwise, the fruit will stick to it.
Spray on some non-stick oil to ensure that you can turn the fruit without it sticking. Make sure that your grill is pretty hot because you want to have some nice grill marks on the fruit.
You are not really cooking the fruit, but just giving it a nice grill char. And giving it the smoky flavor of the grill.
Drizzle the orange sauce over the hot fruit and you are done! You can garnish your delectable fruit with some additional orange zest.
