Grilled Grapefruit

Servings: 2

Time: 5-7 minutes

  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 teaspoon of palm sugar, sucanat or organic cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 pinches ginger (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


Wash grapefruit and cut it in half, along the hemisphere.  Use a small knife to cut around the outside of the grapefruit (between the fruit and the pith, which is the while part) then cut along each of the white membranes separating the sections.   This will make it much easier to scoop out the fruit later.

Top each half with some natural sweetener, a sprinkle of cinnamon and any other combination of spices you prefer. Spread them evenly on the face of the grapefruit

Heat a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Place the grapefruit face down on the pan. Grill for 2-3 minutes, making sure not to burn.

Stand over the stove and take in the sweet aroma. Serve warm.

  1. Veg. is my limit, but fruit? NEVER think of it before.

    You recipe is really an eye-opener here.

    And I’m also open-minded , so I think I will try it out later. Even with smoker. Maybe lay the right fruit on the meat to add some flavor.

    Anyway, thanks for the write-up.


  2. Hi Robyn & Quinn,

    I’ve tried out this recipe and I must say that the taste is definitely something new for me. But having said that, it is an easy and hassle free side dish that goes well with my barbecued meat.

    Please post more interesting recipes!
