  4. ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  5. ½ cup dark rum
  6. ¼ cup honey

  1. Spray grill with nonstick, nonflammable cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium heat (350° to 400°).
  2. In a large bowl, toss strawberries with sugar, vanilla powder, and salt. Let sit for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together rum and honey. Pour rum mixture over strawberries.

  4. Place pound cake on grill over indirect heat. Grill until toasted, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from grill, and set aside.
