Ingredients

  • 4 stone fruits such as apricots, peaches or plums, halved and pitted
  • Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt, preferably Maldon
  • 1 small wedge (about 1/4 pound) best-quality blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup best-quality honey
  • Small basil leaves
  • Chef notes

    When you can't decide between a dessert and a cheese course, make this dish. It's a little savory, a little sweet, and perfectly balanced. It's just the thing when the grill's been fired up all day but you're not quite ready to let those hot coals go.

    Swap option: If blue cheese is not your flavor, fresh ricotta would be equally lovely here.

    Preparation

    1.

    Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and brush the grates with oil.

    2.

    Brush the fruit halves with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Put them flesh-side down on the hot grill and cook just until you get some good grill marks on the fruit, about 4 minutes. Turn the fruit and grill for another 2 minutes.

    3.

    Transfer the fruit to a platter, garnish with a bit of blue cheese, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkling of basil.
