Broiled Grapefruit

This fruit makes the perfect side dish to your breakfast feast! Look for unblemished grapefruits that feel very heavy for their size—this means they’ll be full of juice and ready for eating.


3 ruby red grapefruits, halved horizontally
1⁄4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon Maldon salt or other large-flake salt


  1. Preheat the broiler with a rack about 4 inches from the heat.
  2. Place the grapefruit halves, cut side up, on the prepared sheet pan. Use a small paring knife or curved grapefruit knife to section the grapefruits, cutting around the outer membrane to separate it from the flesh and between the individual sections.
  3. Mix together the brown sugar and ground cardamom in a small bowl. Sprinkle each grapefruit half with the sugar mixture, dividing it evenly. Sprinkle the salt on the sugared grapefruit.
  4. 4Broil the grapefruit, keeping a close eye on the pan and rotating if needed, until the fruit is charred at the edges and caramelized in the center, 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Let the grapefruit cool for 5 minutes before enjoying warm.
