Following my previous breakfasty post, I present to you the grilled pink grapefruit. Sprinkled with brown sugar and placed under a hot grill, this is an original and wonderfully impressive way to prepare the gorgeous fruit for breakfast or brunch.
If anything, they are quite a beautiful sight aren’t they? Grapefruit is a love it or hate it thing. I am on the love-it side, and that includes the plain old sour and bitter yellow ones. And I wouldn’t dream of putting sugar on my grapefruit. Truth be told the pink variety is slightly friendlier to the tastebuds as it’s a little sweeter. So when I saw these babies I couldn’t help but try them. And I’m very happy I did. The taste is very interesting. It’s not necessarily better than a fresh pink grapefruit cold from the fridge, it’s just different and equally enjoyable. If however I was looking to impress with a lovely breakfast or brunch spread, I would definitely opt for this version.
A word of warning. The brown, slightly caramelised sugar on top does not transform this into a sweet fruit. If you don’t like it fresh, don’t bother trying it grilled. It is still very much a grapefruit. You are, however, missing out on a great thing!
What amazed me most about this was the combination suggested in the original post (see below). Yogurt. Wow, grapefruit and yogurt. Now that is something I would never have thought to try. And yet it works! Sprinkle on some granola as well and there you have it. A gorgeously beautiful and tasty breakfast.
