Have you ever tried broiled grapefruit? I have a few days ago.
Up until recently, I’d just cut it and eat it straight from the bowl. Turns out, broiled grapefruit is delightful!
Broiling brings out the sweetness and tampers the acidity of the grapefruit. It’s a wonderfully sweet and delectable addition to any meal or dessert.
It can easily be modified to use many different fruits such as peaches, apricots, or pineapple.
I strongly suggest cutting sections prior to broiling. Otherwise, you’ll have a very sticky mess on your hands!
Broiled Grapefruit Recipe
To make it easy to eat the grapefruit, use a serrated knife to slice the segments and then all around the outside (see instructions here). It will make it easier to eat. They also make grapefruit spoons.
If you aren’t into adding sweetener, then just broil the grapefruits without any sugar. If you’re OK with adding a little sweetener, then use whatever you have in your pantry – regular sugar, brown sugar, agave or maple syrup, or stevia.
These would be a great dessert to impress your guests – even at those who come unexpectedly – because they look pretty and take under under 10 minutes to prepare.
Just like regular grapefruits, these are great anytime – breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, dessert.
I’d never think about broiling a grapefruit, until I found this inspiration. When I saw the amazing pictures on that site, I knew I had to try it.
