When I started seeing this new trend to broil grapefruit, I was immediately intrigued. I'd never had grapefruit with anything on it, so I knew the sugar would add a lot more sweetness to this typically tart fruit. I knew this was a trend I had to hop onto--pronto! I was impressed by the taste of the broiled grapefruit. I typically eat my grapefruit at room temperature because I think it has more flavor and juice than a cold grapefruit. Broiling this fruit amplifies the flavor and juiciness even more!
You will need:
1 large grapefruit
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1. Using a sharp paring knife, cut the grapefruit in half. Then cut the grapefruit along the rind and between each segment.
2. Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar over each grapefruit half. If desired, you could also sprinkle some cinnamon on the grapefruit.
3. Place grapefruit halves on a cookie sheet and place under a preheated broiler for 3-4 minutes. The sugar will carmelize and the fruit will become plump.
