Ingredients

  • 2 red or pink grapefruits, chilled
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Directions

Special Equipment: Blowtorch

Halve each grapefruit crosswise, and cut a thin slice off the bottom of each half to stabilize the pieces. Remove all seeds from the grapefruit, and loosen the segments with a paring knife.

Sprinkle each half evenly with the sugar. Using a blowtorch, melt the sugar to form a golden brown and crispy surface. Sprinkle the hot sugar with the salt, and serve immediately.
