GRAPEFRUIT BRULEE (for four)
2 grapefruits, halved crosswise
4 tablespoons raw sugar
a kitchen torch (if you don’t have one use your grill or broiler to caramelize the sugar into a candy shell)
- Trim ¼” to ½” of peel from bottom of each grapefruit half to stabilize the fruit. Place fruit cut side down on paper towels for 5 minutes. Invert and sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over exposed flesh of each half. Using a kitchen torch, heat sugar until melted and dark amber.
- Alternatively, preheat broiler. Transfer grapefruit, cut side up, to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Broil, watching to prevent burning, until the sugar is melted and dark amber, about 8 minutes.
- Let grapefruit cool before serving.
