Wrap the beets in foil and put on the grill in indirect heat for 45 to 60 minutes, depending on size of beets, or until they are soft.

Mix the crème fraiche with the goat cheese until it is smooth. Add salt to taste.

Remove the beets from the grill. Cut a x in them and open up. Fill the opening with the cheese cream.

Drizzle or spread the honey on top. Add pepper and decorate with the lime zest.
