Broiled Maple Grapefruit

Broiled Maple Grapefruit

I love this recipe so much because it is easy, quick, and so tasty.  It is simple enough for a night on the couch catching up on shows, but the stunning presentation also makes it a great choice for entertaining guests.  Use real, quality maple syrup – it makes such a big difference.

Broiled Maple Grapefruit

Serves 2


  • 1 ruby red grapefruit
  • 1 tbsp real maple syrup (I prefer grade B)
  • 1/2 inch piece of ginger, peeled
  • Cinnamon (optional)

Preheat oven to high broiler setting.  Slice grapefruit in half.  Remove seeds.  Prepare fruit by running a paring knife between each citrus section to loosen the fruit from the skin and membrane.  Place each grapefruit half cut side up on a foil lined baking sheet.  Drizzle with maple syrup, grated fresh ginger, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.  Broil for 3 to 5 minutes, watching carefully so they do not burn.  Remove from oven and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes.  Serve warm.
