heat it up

broiled grapefruit with ginger on twothirtyate.com

I remember eating grapefruits fairly often as a child. My mom would serve them for breakfast after she’d carefully cut each segment away from the rind. I’d eat them with grapefruit spoons that were tiny and sharp on the ends and seemed like they were from a different era. Do people even own grapefruit spoons anymore?


Now when I buy a grapefruit it sits in my fruit bowl for a month until I throw it out. I have the best grapefruit eating intentions that never come to fruition. I like grapefruit flavored things, but the idea of cutting open and eating a grapefruit is just…unappealing.


A broiled grapefruit, though? So good! The heat releases their juices and the ginger gives them a nice added flavor. You can use regular honey to drizzle on top, but I chose to use Mike’s Hot Honey. It’s infused with chili’s to give a spicy kick to its sweetness and I’m seriously obsessed with it!


This grapefruit isn’t just good for breakfast or a snack, though. Stay tuned for a seriously delicious beverage idea.

broiled grapefruit with ginger
makes 2 servings

printer-friendly version

1 grapefruit
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon ground ginger

Position the oven rack toward the top and prepare the oven for broiling. Cut the grapefruit in half and drizzle the honey over the top. Sprinkle the ginger over the cut side of the grapefruit and place in an oven-safe dish. Place under broiler and cook for about 5 minutes until the edges start to turn golden and the top bubbles slightly. Let cool slightly before eating.
