Serve Grilled Peaches with Burrata

Topped with a balsamic reduction, these Grilled Peaches feature a spoonful of burrata and crushed pumpkin seeds.

This past weekend I was in Portland in not very summer-y weather at all. And guess what? I loved it. I don’t think I’m supposed to be in hot weather — it makes me feel ill. But one thing I do love about the summer are all the grilled foods. Grilled veggies, grilled fruit…all delicious. Let’s just grill everything!

When I was in Portland I went to a restaurant where nearly everything was grilled. I had grilled octopus, grilled summer veggies and the most perfectly grilled peaches. The peaches were served in a savory context with cheese and dukkah. They were fantastic. So simple and delicious. I feel like grilled foods should be simple. This iteration of that dish is simple, too. It’s topped with a balsamic reduction, a spoonful of burrata and crushed pumpkin seeds. And salt! The sweet and salty is magical.

Happy grilling season!

    Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 yellow peaches (ripe yet firm), halved and pitted
  • Olive oil
  • 8 ounces burrata (2 balls of burrata)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

    Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, set over medium heat, add the balsamic vinegar. Cook until it reduces by half and is very syrup-y; do not walk away since this happens in about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl (it’ll thicken as it cools) and set aside.
  2. Fire up your grill. Brush the peaches with a bit of olive oil. Grill over high heat, cut side down for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the grill and then immediately brush with the balsamic vinegar glaze. Top with a spoonful of burrata and transfer back to the grill, over low heat, just to warm the burrata and melt it slightly. Transfer to a plate and garnish with salt, pepper and crushed pumpkin seeds. Easy peasy!
