hot melon treat?

I'm hoping I get to taste some delicious watermelon this 4th-of-July weekend. For anyone who's going to be grilling and wants to mix up the usual, here's an easy recipe for Grilled Honey Watermelon.

Several slices watermelon
Some honey for brushing watermelon slices

juice of 2 limes
the zest of half a lime
3 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons water
a few dashes of cayenne pepper
a couple of pinches of salt

Preheat grill to high. Cut watermelon into 1-inch thick slices. Brush each side lightly with some honey and place on grill. Grill until just browned, about 2 minutes per side. Place watermelon slices on a plate and drizzle with the honey-lime syrup.
