Summer Melon Skewers

By on July 11, 2013

As easy as good.  The cracked pepper and lime zest skews interesting.

So these are just balled cantaloupe skewered with fresh mint and a little pull of prosciutto.  Just before service, drizzle with fresh lime juice and a throw of lime zest.  Finish with a few turns of fresh cracked pepper.  The pics are from an evening summer cocktail party out on my in-laws’ flagstone patio.  With oysters on the half shell and a flinty Sancerre.  It was all very Summer Breeze.   

Here’s a parting shot:

      hey Nat! basil on this is great too… I’m also thinking about rosemary — maybe use the sprig as the skewer…

    Bravo to Chef Nathan ~ once again!
    Since we were guests on the flagstone terrace, we can attest to the melon ball skewers! The zest and hint of pepper add the piquant combination you desire on a hot summer eve. Topped only by the oysters and Sancerre!
    This one goes in the recipe file 🙂 Deb and Leo
