Grilled what?

It was amazing experience. When we visited our frend's boarding house in Vancouver BC in Canada, the house owner cooked some Indian foods and grilled watermelon.

4)Pour sause balsamic vinegar on the grilled watermelon as desired.
5)Finish!

西瓜を5cmの厚さで輪切り!にし、それをグリルで焼くだけ、焼き具合はお好みで、最後にバルサミコ酢をかけてどうぞ!

Umm...,this was tastes a strange...
It could use a little pepping, it will become more interesting taste.

もう一工夫あるといい感じなので、レシピ探しました。。。

And I have searched more recipe...and I found the following recipe.

Grilled water melon with caramelized sugar;
Sprinkle one side of each 1-inch-thick wedge with sugar and place on the grill, sweetened side down, until sugar caramelizes, about 3 minutes. (Do not flip.) Remove from grill.

2.5から3cm櫛切りにして、片方に砂糖をまぶして、まぶした方を下にしてカラメルになるまで焼く。大体3分。ひっくり返さず。カラメルが甘くなってホットなデザートという感じ。

Grilled Watermelon Salad

Directions:
1)Prepare the grill. If using a gas grill, heat it to medium. If using a charcoal grill, start the charcoal or wood briquettes; when the briquettes are ready, distribute them evenly under the cooking area for direct heat. Oil the grate.
2)Grill the watermelon slices for 2 minutes, then turn over and grill for 2 minutes, until slightly caramelized on both sides. Transfer to a plate and refrigerate for about 10 minutes, until slightly chilled.
3)Meanwhile, combine the onion, feta cheese and olives in a medium mixing bowl.
4)Cut the chilled watermelon into 1 1/2-inch cubes (discarding the rind), then add to the bowl, tossing lightly to combine.
5)Whisk together the oil and vinegar in a small bowl; add the salt and pepper. Pour the vinaigrette over the ingredients in the bowl, tossing to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 3 hours to marinate.
6)To serve, divide the spinach among individual plates. Spoon the watermelon mixture over the spinach, reserving some of the vinaigrette to drizzle on the plate. Sprinkle basil and mint to taste on each salad and serve immediately.

3cm~5cm厚に切ったスイカを2分焼く。裏返して又2分。両サイドが少しカラメル色になるまで焼いたら、皿に移して10分ほど冷蔵庫に。熱を取る。その間に、たまねぎ、フェタチーズ、オリーブを別のボールで混ぜておく。あら熱を取ったスイカ2~3cm角ぐらいのダイスに切って、それをボールにいれて混ぜる。
別のボールでオリーブオイルとバルサミコ酢、塩コショウををすばやく混ぜる。このビネグレットを先ほどのスイカの入ったボールに入てまぜて、ふたをして1~3時間冷蔵庫にいれてマリネにする。最後にサーブする際、皿にホウレンソウをいれて、その上にスイカミックスを載せて、その上からビネグレットを皿に振りかけて、バジル、ミントを振りかけて終わり。

Ingredients:
2 large slices seedless watermelon, about 1 1/2 inches thick (cut from the center)
1 medium red onion, cut into very thin strips (julienne)
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 1/2 cups pitted kalamata olives, cut in half
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 to 16 ounces baby or tender spinach, stemmed, washed and dried
