6small steaks
6small steaks
  • 1/2 large seedless watermelon
  • 1 Tbsp flavourless oil
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic reduction
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Garnish with edible flowers optional
  1. Cut watermelon in half lengthwise. Place flat side down, and cut 1 1/2 to 2 inch wide slice (erring on the side of too wide). Cut the largest rectangle possible from each of these slices. You should be able to get about 6 good steaks from 1/2 a watermelon.
  2. Pat dry each of the steaks with a paper towel, then place in refrigerator, uncovered, for 1 to 2 hours to dry out excess moisture. Give them a final pat fry right before cooking.
  3. Bring oil to low-medium heat in a large saute pan. Gently slide each steak in, cooking for about 5 minutes on each side. Increase heat to medium-high and continue to cook each side for one minute, or until sides are lightly browned. You may have to work in batches if the steaks don’t all fit.
  4. Remove watermelon steaks from heat and plate.
  5. Drizzle 1 tsp of honey and 1/2 Tbsp balsamic reduction over each steak. Top each with a dash of chopped fresh mint, a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese, and a few edible flowers.
