  • 1 ruby red grapefruit
  • 2 tbsp turbinado or other unrefined coarse sugar


  • Preheat the broiler to high.
  • Slice the grapefruit in half crosswise - so that the blossom end is facing up or touching the cutting board. To make eating a lot easier, use a paring knife to cut down and along the segment membrane lines. This will make the finished broiled grapefruit a breeze to scoop out to eat!
  • Sprinkle each grapefruit half with a tablespoon of sugar each. Broil 5 minutes or until the top is a tinged with a deep golden brown color as shown. Serve warm.


(Unless you're using a well-seasoned cast iron skillet, I recommend lining the pan with foil to avoid stuck on burnt sugar.)
