Food52 Review: This was just lovely, especially considering it only called for 2 ingredients and took me 10 minutes to make and eat! The caraway seeds give the cantaloupe a nutty flavor and searing brought out all of the melon's juices.

  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
In This Recipe

Directions

  1. Toast caraway seeds in a skillet for 2 to 3 minutes in a skillet over medium heat. While those are toasting, slice cantaloupe into inch-thick wedges (you can remove the rind, but don't have to). Once the caraway becomes fragrant, remove seeds and set aside.
  2. Place skillet back on medium heat and place cantaloupe wedges in the hot pan. Sear each side for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until the melon becomes juicy and starts to caramelize. Flip and cook the opposite side the same way. Remove the melon and sprinkle with toasted caraway seeds. And eat!
