Ingredients

BBQ Strawberries

  • ½ lb strawberries
  • 1 ball burrata
  • ½ cup black garlic
  • ½ cup balsamic reduction, recipe follows (or 25 yr aged balsamic)
  • Smoked olive oil, to taste
  • Basil buds, garnish
  • Kosher salt, to taste

Balsamic Reduction

  • 2 cups balsamic vinegar

Steps

BBQ Strawberries

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Husk and cut strawberries in half.
  3. Heat cast iron pan over medium heat. Once hot, sear the strawberries, 1-2 minutes.
  4. Finish off in the oven for about 3-5 minutes until nicely charred. Set aside.
  5. To make the dressing, add black garlic and balsamic reduction in a blender and puree until smooth. Set aside.
  6. Take your burrata and plate it in your preferred dish (a shallow bowl works well).
  7. Spoon BBQ Strawberries around the burrata and drizzle with the dressing.
  8. Finish off with a drizzle of smoked olive oil, basil buds, and a sprinkle of salt.

Balsamic Reduction

  1. Add balsamic vinegar into a heavy bottom saucepan and slowly heat the vinegar until it starts to simmer.
  2. Lower the heat to keep the vinegar simmering, and allow the vinegar to reduce. Keep reducing until it turns into a syrupy glaze, about 20 minutes. It will continue to thicken as it cools. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the balsamic reduction to cool. Store in a glass jar or bottle, and it will keep for several weeks.
