  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

  • 1 pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  1. Place the sliced strawberries into a small bowl, add sugar and brandy, and stir to coat. Let stand while you prepare the polenta.

  2. Cut polenta into eight 1/2- to 3/4-inch-thick slices. Lightly brush the slices with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly spray the grate.

  4. Grill the polenta slices for 7 to 10 minutes per side, turning once. Place 2 slices on a dessert plate and top with 1/4 of the strawberry mixture.
