I love grapefruit so much, I often go through periods where I eat one a day! I think it was my grandma who got me hooked on them because my first grapefruit memories involve me watching her slice one open, and then carefully sprinkle a thin layer of sugar on top. I would then of course sprinkle some extra sugar on mine, making a very thick layer of sugar on top 🙂 As I got older, I started to appreciate the taste of grapefruit so much that the sugar topping was banished, and all I wanted was the pure, unaltered fruit!
But then yesterday I made this grilled grapefruit on the BBQ for the first time, and I have now entered a new phase of even deeper love for grapefruits. This grilled grapefruit is so amazing, I ended up making 3 of them yesterday; I ate two of them on their own, and chopped one up and added it to my salad! DROOL!
For the salad, I just made my Sweet with Heat Salad, and then added some sliced up grilled grapefruit. I loved the addition of the sour taste with the sweet and spicy flavours of the other ingredients! Just cut off the skin before eating, (I kept it on only because it looked nice in the picture haha)
- coconut or grapeseed oil
- Slice your grapefruit in half
- Brush the exposed grapefruit flesh with some oil
- Place the slices face down on the BBQ and cook for 5 to 10 minutes until grill lines appear
- Take off of BBQ and drizzle a little bit of honey and sprinkle with cinnamon
I haven’t tried this in the oven yet, but I’m going to give it a go soon. I’m thinking of putting the slices face up on a baking tray, with the honey and cinnamon already drizzled on top, and then baking at 350F for about 10 minutes. Once I try it, I will update you!
