Think BBQ Sauce doesnâ t belong on fruit? Think again. Then slice up some cantaloupe, whip together a batch of watermelon BBQ sauce, then slather it on and throw it on the grill for this delightful side dish.
- First, prepare the BBQ sauce. Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat and add the onions and garlic, sautÃ©ing for a few minutes or until tender.
- While the onion cooks, add watermelon to a food processor or blender and puree. When the onions are done cooking, add the pureed melon and all remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
- Simmer for 30 minutes, then allow to cool slightly before transferring to a jar for serving or storage. If a smoother consistency is desired, use a food processor or blender to puree the sauce.
- Then slice the cantaloupe into wedges, rind removed, and skewer with pre-soaked skewers. Place on the grill over medium-high heat for 15 minutes or until grill marks appear, flipping once halfway through. Just before finished cooking, brush on a bit of BBQ sauce, then remove from heat. Pour more sauce on top and serve immediately warm or at room temperature.
