Nothing is better for summer parties then watermelon, how about trying it on the FIREDISC?
  • Avacado Oil
  • 3 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • Zest of one lime
  • 1/4 large watermelon (about 5 lbs), cut into 1-inch thick wedges
  • Fresh cilantro and lime wedges for serving
  • Put oil in FIREDISC and turn to high heat
  • In a small bowl, stir together the sugar, salt, and lime zest. Pinch the mixture together with your fingertips to combine all of the ingredients.
  • Lay the watermelon wedges in a single layer on a sheet tray. Reserve 1 teaspoon of the salt mixture; set aside. Sprinkle half of the remaining salt mixture all over the watermelon wedges. Flip and sprinkle the wedges with the other half of the salt mixture. Place on a cooling rack set over a sheet tray and let rest for 15 minutes. Using paper towels, press firmly on the slices to remove excess moisture.
  • Place the wedges in the FIREDISC over direct heat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove the watermelon from the disc and place on a sheet tray or serving platter. Sprinkle with the reserved salt mixture and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
