Calypso Grilled Mango

Monday, 26 May 2008


Grilling caramelizes the sugar and honey in the sauce, making the fruit sweeter. This is obviously a dessert, but it can be served as a side dish to barbecued ribs, poultry, or fish. Other firm fruits will work, such as peaches or pineapple, but make sure that they are slightly under ripe. It is difficult to grill ripe fruit.

Cooking Method
Heat Level

Rum and Habanero Sauce

  • 1/4 cup butter

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons orange juice, fresh preferred

  • 1/2 teaspoon lime juice, fresh preferred

  • 1 teaspoon orange zest

  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground habanero chile

The Mangoes

  • 2 mangoes, slightly underripe

  • Vanilla ice cream

  • Toasted shredded coconut

  • Chopped macadamia nuts


MangoPrepare the sauce by combining the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Remove and cool

Peel the mangoes and remove the flesh by cutting away from the seed on the flat side of each fruit. You should have 2 large slices of fruit from each mango.

Brush the mango slices with some of the sauce and let stand for 5 minutes. Oil a clean grill, place the mango slices in a grill basket, and grill over a low fire until lightly browned and glazed, turning often, basting with the sauce. The grilling should take about 4 to 6 minutes.

To serve, sprinkle the coconut over 4 serving plates, place a mango slice and a scoop of ice cream over the coconut, drizzle remaining sauce over all, and top with the macadamia nuts.
