Place dessert bowls in freezer or fridge.
Melt butter, add sugar and Chinese Five Spice, whisk until incorporated.
Slice fruits in half and remove pits.
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Leave half of grill off or coals pushed to one side. Make sure grill grates are clean and oiled.
Brush the cut side of the peaches with olive oil.
Grill fruits cut side down for roughly 1-2 minutes. You are simply trying to put good grill marks on the fruit.
Turn fruits on to the skin side and move them to the cooler side of the grill. Baste them with the sugar, butter, and spice mixture. Close the grill lid and let these cook for another 2-5 minutes. Once satisfied with cooked fruit doneness, transfer for a plate.
Serve fruits with a scoop of ice cream, splash of sugar butter, and garnish with toasted almonds.
When selecting your peaches and plums, look for the firmer ones. Anything too soft/ripe could turn to goop on the grill. Although, it would be delicious goop!
