2. In a medium mixing bowl add your sliced peach wedges, oil, honey and cajun spice. Toss to fully coat and refrigerate for approximately 15 minutes.
3. On a charcoal or gas and/or home grill set at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Add marinated peaches. Cook until charred, soft and caramelized. Remove from grill and set aside in a glass bowl.
