Easy, Addictive and Healthy: Alton Browns Grapefruit Brûlée

Since we are all still not feeling to well, I was just not in the mood to post. I did make great pictures of adorable and delicious food and will soon tell you about it.

But today I only have a small treat fro you.

I adore Alton and most of the time I am pretty happy with his food but this Grapefruit Brûlée with the sprinkling of Salt is so amazing I just want to eat it all the time.

It`s easy and it`s so delicious that I have had it 7 days in a row ( yes I know crazy). 

Give it a try and if you want to watch how Alton does it watch Good Eats his delicious episode called  The Ballad of Salty and Sweet.

 Grapefruit Brûlée 


2 red or pink grapefruits, chilled

2 tablespoons coarse sugar

3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt


Special Equipment: Blowtorch

Halve each grapefruit crosswise, and cut a thin slice off the bottom of each half to stabilize the pieces. Remove all seeds from the grapefruit, and loosen the segments with a paring knife.

Sprinkle each half evenly with the sugar. Using a blowtorch, melt the sugar to form a golden brown and crispy surface. Sprinkle the hot sugar with the salt, and serve immediately.
