Plan on Grilling Papaya?

Here is how to Grill Papaya.

Surprise your family and friends with tasty, healthy fruit prepared on the barbeque. 

You can grill papaya alone, or in combination with other fruits and create a delicious grilled fruit salad!

You can prepare barbequed papaya as a snack, a dessert, or included as a main menu dish.

Be creative, the possibilities for grilling papaya are many!

Tropical, juicy, sweet papaya fruit is shaped like a pear, resembles a melon on the inside but is botanically a berry.

Christopher Columbus called papaya fruit, "fruit of the angels". 

Grilling Papaya

Papayas are often harvested before they fully ripen to prevent bruising during shipping.

Unripe papayas are green and gradually turn yellow as they ripen.

Choose papayas that are beginning to turn yellow and dent slightly when gentle pressure is applied.

Avoid papayas that are hard, completely green, shrivelled or have dark spots on the peel.

To allow papayas to ripen, place them in a dark area at room temperature for a few days, (or in a loosely closed, paper bag to speed up the maturing process).

Papaya tastes best when eaten within a few days of turning ripe.

For grilling, ensure papayas are well ripened, but not overripe.

How to Grill Papaya

Preheat or prepare the grill for medium heat.

Clean and oil the grates.

Peel papaya, removes seeds, and cut fruit into wedges.

Note - Ensure wedges are large enough that they will not fall through the barbeque grates.

Brush papaya fruit with oil (canola oil works well), and grill, until grill marks appear, and fruit is lightly browned and tender, about 3 minutes.

Turn fruit, and grill on the other side for about 3 minutes.

Tip - Add a dollop of Greek yogurt or a drizzle of balsamic vinegar over top of the papaya fruit for an extra special treat!
