Magnificent and surprising hot melon salad

Magnificent – because it looks magnificent, surprising because you grill the melon.

You could adapt this recipe and make an impressive starter using very small melons. Cut in half, remove seeds, and fill the revealed cavity with burrata, bacon, cooked and peeled prawns and drizzle with pomegranate molasses.

If you don’t have any pomegranate molasses you could use thick, syrupy balsamic vinegar.

Music to listen to

It has to be Runnin’ Wild, from Some Like It Hot.
