Who said grilled fruit has to be a dessert? It certainly wasn't me. When I was looking around the internet for a method on how to do this recipe, I kept finding dessert recipes. But I wanted a side and that is what I did. You are more than welcome to do this with peaches or plums. I give you permission- but just this once.
Nectarines, as many as you want, halved and pit removed
Ground black pepper
Heat grill to high.
Set nectarine halves on a platter, cut side up. Pour a small amount of olive oil (a few tablespoons) into a bowl and brush nectarine halves with the oil. Sprinkle on a small amount of brown sugar and add a few grinds of black pepper.
Grill nectarines, cut side down, until dark grill marks appear and the skin is hot to the touch, about 3 minutes.
Served with this: grilled flank steak, green salad
