Honey Grilled Squash Recipe
  • Pierce skin of squash several times and place on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave; cook on high for 6 to 8 minutes. This will soften the squash slightly, making it easier to cut in half.  Overcooking at this point will make the squash fall apart when handling.
  • After microwaving, allow the squash to sit for 2 or 3 minutes. Cut in half crosswise and remove seeds and stringy fibers from the center. Peel away the outer skin of the squash and then cut the two halves into approximately 1 1/2" cubes.
  • Thread the squash cubes onto metal skewers and brush with 1/4 cup melted butter. Place the squash on the grill over indirect high heat and close the cover. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn 2 or 3 times throughout the cooking time and baste with leftover melted butter.
  • While squash is cooking, mix 1/4 cup melted butter and honey together and heat in microwave until hot. Squash is done if tender when poked with a fork. When done, remove the squash from the grill and place on a platter. Brush the squash with the honey and butter mixture. Serve while hot.
