BBQ or Griddled Peaches

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 10 mins

A fruit dessert that is so simple to make. Use a gridle, frying pan or BBQ to cook your peaches. If using a BBQ lay down some aluminium foil and have your heat very low. You can also use the aluminium disposable trays to cook the peaches in for the BBQ.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ripe firm peaches
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or 1 tablespoon rice syrup or 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon light olive oil
  • 40 g crushed pecan nuts (1 1/2 ounces) or 40 g sliced almonds, toasted (1 1/2 ounces)


  1. Halve the peaches and remove and discard the stones. Cut the peaches into thick slices. There's no need to remove the skins but you can if you wish to.
  2. Heat the oil. Add the peaches and cook 3-5 minutes on each side. They should start to caramelise.
  3. Sprinkle with the toasted nuts and serve. You can drizzle a little maple syrup around the plate if you wish.

Great flavor! These peaches would be good on top of a slice of pound cake or toast. An easy and quick dish to prepare. I used the pecans rather than almonds and did not toast them. Prepared as a participant in the Aus/NZ Swap #41 June 2010.

When I'd tagged this recipe I had not great hope of finding acceptable fresh peaches in my area, but surprise of surprises, I did & this recipe gave me AN OUTSTANDINGLY GREAT TASTING PEACH DISH! I used a generous measure of sliced almonds! An absolutely wonderful recipe to keep on hand! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a recipenap in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #34]
