  • Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium heat. Cut each of the 4 remaining unpeeled fruit into 4 slices each. Remove meat/fish from marinade; discard marinade. Place 8 of the fruit slices on grill; top with meat/fish. Brush with reserved sauce mixture.
  • Grill meat/fish in covered grill 5 min.; turn meat/fish over on top of fruit. Add remaining 8 fruit slices to grill. Continue cooking until meat/fish is cooked through, turning occasionally and brushing with the reserved sauce mixture. (See Grilling Times below.) Remove meat/fish and fruit from grill. Discard fruit sllices under the meat/fish. Serve remaining fruit slices with meat/fish.

    THIS IS MY ALLTIME FAVORITE RECIPE OF ALL!! MY NEW FAVORITE FOOD!! Absolutely LOVED this, we served some friends this dish, and they Demanded the recipe. Lol, next day we ran into them in the grocery store, they were buying the ingredients--HAD TO eat it again. DELISH!! PRETTY AND YUMMY!! We used salmon and grapefruit, and it was VERY flavorful. We had no trouble cooking the fish all the way through, as one poster wrote below, but, we have a great gas grill and grill often. {I tend to overcook fish anyway, it's actually how i prefer it.}

    The flavors of this dish were really good, however, we had trouble cooking the meat evenly with the fruit below it. We found the center of the meat took far longer and it was really difficult to manage. Maybe we are just not that good of grillers as I did not see any other comments from other users.
