There are many people, myself included, that think cooking prosciutto is basically a crime against nature; but there are exceptions, and this plate of grilled peaches with burrata is one incredibly delicious example.  Serve as an appetizer or a sweet/savory dessert.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

    Advertisement
  • Cut peaches in half and remove peach stones. Cut each half in half again.

  • Wrap prosciutto around each peach section; secure with small bamboo skewers.

  • Grill peaches, turning often, until prosciutto gets a little crisp around the edges and the peaches begin to caramelize, about 6 minutes.

  • To serve, spoon burrata onto serving plates. Remove peaches from skewers; place several of the grilled peaches around the cheese. Drizzle with olive oil. Top with a sprinkle of sea salt and pepper; garnish with basil.

Cook's Note:

2 peaches are enough for 2 large or 4 small servings.

Instead of bamboo skewers, you can also use wooden toothpicks to attached the prosciutto to the peaches.

If you can't find burrata cheese, you can use fresh mozzarella or ricotta cheese.

The saltiness of the prosciutto and sweetness of the peaches paired well together. The creamy burrata cheese (my firstfirst time having burtata-yum!) worked well with the peaches too and the fresh basil was a much needed and perfect fresh compliment to the dish. I made this as a simple and delicious lunch. Read More

The prosciutto really crisps up nicely on the grill and is a great combination with the peach. The contrast in textures and the sweet-salty combo of the prosciutto and peach is delicious! I crumbled goat cheese beneath each peach (because that's what I had on hand) and it was very tasty with the peaches. Everyone loved it. Can't wait to try with the burrata cheese. Thanks for another great recipe Chef John! Read More

Made this for the fourth of July 2017 and everyone (even the picky eaters) loved it. Could not find buratta cheese locally in time for dinner so substituted fresh mozarella instead. DELICIOUS! Read More

This is the yummiest thing I have had in a while! I don’t have a grill, so I made it on a cast iron grill pan on the stove. I sprinkled a tiny bit of smoked sea salt on top; it was to die for. Read More

My favorite Chef! We had perfect peaches on hand as well as Basil and olive oil just needed the cheeze.Smith's grocery ppl. had never heard of it.So we bought Ricotta and prepared the peaches along with some jumbo (we partially precooked) shrimp with the Prosciutto and grilled over a Catclaw wood fire must say-it was wonderful.We had a couple of peaches leftover for breakfast and I had one with a toasted English muffin with honey on it-too good for words.Thank you Chef John.
