Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons thick honey
  • 2 pink grapefruit

Equipment

  • 1 ovenproof dish
  • 1 serving plate
  • 1 very sharp kitchen knife
  • 1 grapefruit knife
  • 1 small chopping-board

Method

Cut the grapefruit in half. Separate the segments from their membranes, using a grapefruit knife to cut round the outside. Spread a tablespoon of honey over each half grapefruit.

Heat the grill. When it is really hot, grill the grapefruit for 7–8 minutes. The heat will burst the top layer of their flesh and lightly caramelise it.

This recipe makes an unusual and delicious first course.
