Grapefruit Brûlée

Makes 4 servings


  • 2 Grapefruits
  • 4 Tbsp. Raw Sugar


1. Half each grapefruit half and trim 1/4–1/2″ off of the bottom of the peel to stabilize the fruit and prevent it from rocking back and forth.

2. Place grapefruit, exposed side down, on paper towels to dry for 5 minutes. This will help the sugar stick better in next step.

3. Turn grapefruit back over and sprinkle 1 Tbsp. sugar evenly over exposed flesh of each grapefruit half.

4. Torch and heat sugar until melted and beginning to turn dark amber.

5. Cool before serving & enjoy!

TIP: No torch, no problem…just broil the grapefruits! Place grapefruits, cut side up, on to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Broil grapefruit, watching closely to prevent burning, until the sugar is melted and beginning to turn dark amber, about 8 minutes.
