Ingredients
2 - 3 lbs
buttercup, kabocha or peeled butternut squash
½ cup
olive oil
2 tbsp
Spiced Fleur de Sel
¾ cup
walnut pieces, toasted
Shaved pecorino cheese for finishing
Freshly cracked black pepper
Step 1
Cut your squash in half and remove the seeds. Cut each half into ½-inch-thick moons.
Step 2
Preheat the grill to 500°F degrees.
Step 3
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and 1½ tablespoons of the Spiced Fleur de Sel. Add the squash and coat both sides of each piece with the mixture.
Step 4
Place the squash pieces on the grill and cook for 10-15 minutes total, flipping them halfway. When done, they should have nice grill marks on both sides and be tender when poked with a skewer.
Step 5
Remove the squash from the grill and finish with the walnuts, cheese, a sprinkle of the Spiced Fleur de Sel and a few turns of the pepper grinder. Serve warm.
