When I found this recipe in Oxygen magazine I was super curious about it. I had never in my life heard of or even fathomed putting a fresh grapefruit in the oven to be broiled! 🙂 But I was so excited to test this out!
After cutting this huge beastly grapefruit in half I was astonished to find the radiant pink color!! Usually, our grapefruits are very light pink. Ava was dying to get a bite, but I insisted that we were going to try this broiling thing out.
After a long 3-4 minutes under the broiler we had the most fantastic treat imaginable!! The fruit was sooo warm and sweet with lovely vanilla soft notes and just a pinch of tartness. As we cut into the meaty sections they fell apart so delicately, much like fresh crab meat would. 🙂
We savored every bite of this beauty!!! I love it when Ava chooses Grapefruit over candy! Its the one fruit she will always choose over candy!! 🙂
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat Broiler. Cut Grapefruit in half. Add 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar and vanilla to one half of the grapefruit and repeat with other half if you choose to or save it for another use. Place grapefruit in oven for 3-5 minutes until slightly brown on top and warm all the way through. Enjoy!
