This morning I decided to start off my day with a broiled grapefruit. I had never tried it before and it is incredibly easy and amazingly good. The top of the fruit becomes caramelized, almost like creme brulle and the tart juice balances out the sweetness of the sugar. The recipe is as follows;
1 grapefruit halved
2 T sugar
1 T brown sugar
Pinch of sea salt
Place grapefruit in a baking dish, fruit side up. Mix sugars together in a small bowl and spoon on top of grapefruit halves. Press sugar firmly into fruit. Broil at 500 degrees for 3-4 minutes, or until sugar starts to brown. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with salt. Serve with mint and enjoy.
* Also good with greek yogurt on top
