I have read several blogs lately about the idea of broiledgrapefruit, and it is an intriguing idea. I saw one recipe ranging from simple(cut in half, sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, and butter) to decadent (brownsugar, cinnamon, butter, oats, etc…) and while each recipe has its own merits Iwanted something different.
I have never been a traditional grapefruit eater, I do use agrapefruit spoon or knife. I typically peel and eat them like an orange. If itis particularly tart I might sprinkle some sugar on the sections. Howeverlately I have been peeling the fruit with a knife and cutting into sections.This way I can make it portable and fairly easy to eat. Here is a quick videoon how to peel a grapefruit http://youtu.be/1tbf9fGAC10.
So I peeled my fruit and a sliced it into patties (?)
I mixed a pinch of salt with a ½ teaspoon of sugar and about ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon and the sprinkled ontop of the grapefruit. Placed under the broiler for 5-7 minutes.
I really liked the flavor, it was interesting to have a warmcitrus and the little bit of spice was tasty. I think I will double the amountof topping and broil for just a minute or two longer.
Enjoy! Now go broil something!
