Chargrilled Halloumi Prosciutto Wrapped Nectarines and Balsamic Glaze
Chargrilled halloumi cheese appetizers topped with a delicately sweet and savory grilled proscuitto nectarines and drizzled with a balsamic reduction glaze.
Balsamic Reduction Glaze (yields ~⅓ cup)
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
It makes extra so you can use with other recipes.
- 1 tablespoon honey
(or low glycemic sugar such as coconut sugar, maple syrup or even without if diabetic)
Chargrilled Halloumi Prosciutto Wrapped Nectarines
- 8 oz Halloumi cheese
- 1 whole nectarines pit removed and sliced into 8 slices
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 slices prosciutto cut lengthwise and then again in half (each slice cut into 4 long slices)
In a small sauce pan add the balsamic vinegar and honey cook to a boil and then turn down to low-medium heat until reduced to half or a little less than half, and occasionally stir. You will want to ventilate your home ( as the vinegar can be quite strong) and keep an eye on the pan so it does not burn. The goal is for the balsamic glaze to coat the back of the spoon (about 15 minutes). The glaze will thicken as it cools slightly as well. Set aside.
Slice the halloumi cheese in about ¼ inch slices. Cut the nectarines into 8 slices per each. Toss the nectarines and halloumi cheese the into olive oil to coat.
Preheat the grill.
Cut each slice of prosciutto lengthwise then again in half horizontally. Wrap each nectarine with ¼ slice of the prosciutto.
Grill the olive oil coated halloumi cheese and prosciutto wrapped nectarines for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until the halloumi cheese has nice grill marks and the prosciutto wrapped nectarine is slightly golden brown. Do not over cook. Do not take your eyes off the grill as they cook fast.
Drizzle Chargrilled Halloumi Prosciutto Wrapped Nectarines with a drizzle of the balsamic reduction glaze and enjoy!
This recipe makes more balsamic glaze reduction than what you will need for this recipe. You can thank me later as this balsamic glaze is delicious over a caprese salad, grilled salmon or even over ice-cream with strawberries.
You can also make this recipe on your inside grill pan or even just pan roasted for those days that Mother Nature is not cooperating with your plans.
