On occasion I feel like things get too complicated around here: recipes with too many steps, too many ingredients, etc. So I’m bringing simple back, with a simple broiled grapefruit with the zing of fresh ginger and brown sugar for extra sweetness.
Broiled Grapefruit with Ginger and Brown Sugar
* grapefruits, halved and cut into segments with a grapefruit or regular knife
* brown sugar for sprinkling, about 2-3 Tablespoons per grapefruit
* peeled fresh ginger
Preheat your broiler and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
Place the grapefruit halves on the parchment paper and sprinkle with brown sugar. Use a Microplane zester to grate the ginger on top of the grapefruits.
Place in the oven and broil until the sugar has melted into a nice syrup and the tops are just beginning to brown.
Remove from oven. Serve warm or let cool to room temperature.
