10 slices of watermelon wedges, about 2-3 pounds
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tbsp kosher salt, or to taste
1/4 cup mint leaves
scoops of ice cream, to taste




Preheat the grill to a high heat and lightly oil the grate.


Whisk the sugar, honey, cayenne pepper, lemon zest in a bowl into a mixture.


Brush the watermelon wedges all over with mixture to create an even coating, and put them on the grate, waiting for about 2 minutes for them to develop beautiful grill marks, and flip over for another 2 minutes.


Take the watermelon slices out into a platter and form a beautiful stacked circle; top them with scoops of ice cream and edge with mint leaves. Serve immediately.





To ensure the best flavor, we recommend enjoying this dessert as soon as watermelons are freshly taken out after grilling.
