1 large grapefruit (preferably Ruby Red-the redder the sweeter), halved
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons brown sugar
Pinch flaky sea salt, like Maldon
Mint, for garnish


1. In a small bowl, combine the granulated and brown sugars.
2. Evenly sprinkle the sugar mixture over the cut surface of each grapefruit.
3. Using a torch, very carefully and lightly torch the surface of the grapefruit until it is lightly golden brown and the sugar is melted, a few seconds. If using a broiler (preheated to 500 degrees), broil on the top shelf for about 4-5 minutes, checking the grapefruit frequently.
4. Sprinkle with sea salt and garnish with fresh mint.
