Roasted watermelon ?

This was served as the feature ingredient in the salad course at our daughter's wedding reception dinner at The Castle in Tarrytown, NY. It was at room temperature, was intensely flavored, and was of the "usual" texture for watermelon. Any ideas on how one would prepare this? I'd welcome guesses if no one has actual experience with this ...

      Yes! Gave this a try this weekend, and the result was pretty similar. Used a dry sherry instead of the cream, 'cause we had it in the house, but otherwise it was a pretty good re-do of a very interesting dish. (The butter adds a lot to the dish - don't omit or substitute.) Thanks for your help.
