Broiled Grapefruit

In my mind, grapefruit has been associated with the now vilified low fat diets of the 1990s. I never liked it much as a young person, but the tart-sweet flavors in this recipe led me to purchase about 10 grapefruits from a warehouse store. My local grocery store recently sold pummelos, which are bigger in size and sweeter in flavor than grapefruits, and this topping is lovely on them, too.

This guy loved the pummelos!

Serves 2

2 grapefruits
1/4 c almonds
1 T packed light brown sugar
1 T cold unsalted butter

Turn broiler on high and position the rack 4 inches from the heat. Slice the grapefruits in half and place on a baking sheet. Chop the almonds.

In a small bowl mix the chopped almonds with the sugar and butter. Mash everything together with your fingers (or a fork) until it's crumbly.

Spread the almond, sugar, and butter mixture over the grapefruit. Broil for 3-4 minutes until the nuts and sugar are toasted and caramelized. Enjoy!
