Grilled Peaches with Burrata

This dish is simply grilled peaches. It’s topped with a balsamic reduction, a spoonful of burrata and crushed pumpkin seeds. And salt! The sweet and salty is magical.

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 peaches (ripe but firm), halved and pitted
Olive oil
8 ounces burrata or fior di latte or bocconcini (2 balls )

YIELD: 4 servings

COURSE: Appetizers Tapas Meze

CUISINE: Italian


  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!
