Grapefruit Brûlée

  • Author: Misfits Market


  • 2 grapefruits
  • 45 tablespoons raw sugar


  1. Preheat broiler. Trim ¼-inch off the top and bottom of the grapefruits so they don’t wobble. Then, cut in half crosswise.
  2. Place grapefruit halves facedown on a paper towel for 5 minutes to dry off tops. Arrange grapefruit halves flesh side up and evenly cover the tops with sugar.
  3. Place grapefruit under the broiler (keeping a close eye on them!) until the sugar caramelizes and becomes a deep amber color, 5 to 8 minutes.
  4. Let completely cool before serving. Optional: Add a dollop of yogurt and pistachios to top your brûléed grapefruit.


Note: If you have a kitchen torch on hand, you can use that instead of the broiler in Step 3.
