Grapefruit season is in full swing, and lately I’ve been enjoying them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Broiling grapefruit is a nice way to change things up a bit. The heat brings out the fruit’s natural juices and simultaneously melts the brown sugar, allowing the sweetness to seep into the tangy fruit. It’ s pretty delicious and you’ll be quite surprised at how well licorice flavor of tarragon pairs with it all.
Simply slice a grapefruit in half and set each halve on a foil-lined tray. Combine the brown sugar, a little balsamic and some torn tarragon leaves in a small bowl and then smear the mixture on top of the each halve. Broil for a few minutes and serve warm.
