Grill ideas for dessert
After all the hearty dishes, something sweet is needed. Fruit is particularly suitable there. Cut the fruits into small pieces, pour some lime or lemon juice over them and put everything together in a grill basket. Strawberries, pineapples, bananas, mangoes, apples and pears, for example, are well suited for the grill. When the fruit is grilled, simply serve with whipped cream. Chocolate sauce also goes well with the fruit – only then is it the perfect barbecue party! Here are a few things to keep in
mind when grilling the fruit:
- With bananas, the perfect time to take off the grill is when they burst open.
- Strawberries are sensitive and should never be exposed to excessive heat.
- You can also simply cut pears in half and place the inside directly on the grillage for a short time. First remove the core housing. The pulp takes on a delicious aroma.
- Mangoes get a really great smoke aroma when grilled. It is best to remove it from the grid when the fruit flakes are a little crispy on the outside.
- By the way, pineapple is a wonderful contrast to grilled chicken.
If you don’t feel like eating fruit, you can grill marshmallows in the classic way, for example. Crêpes and pancakes are also great on the grill.
