Grand Marnier Grilled Oranges

This is one of those “WOW!” desserts — incredibly easy and incredibly good. It was kindly brought to my attention by David Taylor, marketing whiz for Grand Marnier, who urges it be served with quality vanilla ice cream.

Yield: Serves 4 to 6

•4 to 6 large navel oranges, peeled, pith removed and cut into ½-inch (1 cm) slices
•1 cup (250 mL) Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge (or to taste)
•Vanilla ice cream

Preheat grill or barbecue to medium-high

1. Place orange slices in a shallow dish. Cover with Grand Marnier. Turn slices over once or twice. Cover with plastic wrap. Chill for at least 1 hour.

2. Grill orange slices, brushing carefully with reserved marinade, for 2 to 4 minutes per side or until caramelized. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
