Salted Grapefruit Brûlée

I had hoped to have a cocktail recipe to share today;  but, time took over my schedule.  We are in the middle of hiring 20+ people for an upcoming event, and it has been challenging.  OY!  That is about all I can think to say about that.  Instead, I am going to share this new to us favorite snack/dessert that we have been enjoying, Salted Grapefruit Brûlée.

Grapefruit Brûlée

We have had an abundance of fresh Palm Springs grapefruits around the house, after our time there last December.  Did you know that Palm Springs grapefruits just happen to be the best we have ever had.  Super juicy as they are tree-ripened, and so sweet that you can just peel them and enjoy as you would an orange.  Lenny eats at least 3 or 4 a day.  Occasionally, I like to use them for this simple treat, as it is slightly sinful and still just as delicious as eating them on their own.

Recipe:  Salted Grapefruit Brûlée


  1. OH sweet Mamma! Gimme.

  2. I was an adult convert to grapefruit, but I’m one of the biggest fans now. I love bruleed grapefruits, but I’ve never added salt. Brilliant!

  3. My parents got me to love grapefruit by making them this way! I haven’t had them in years! So delicious!

  4. Kimberly says:

    I got hooked on pomelo fruit (origin of all citrus?) ) on my way home from church last week. They had free samples at our favorite roadside stand and that clinched it for me. You GOTTA try pomelo. I have to go now and broil the ones I bought.

  5. I did not know the tree-ripened virtues of the Palm Springs variety! Lovely service on the grapefruit. I’m thinking a juiced version of this, post brulee and salt, would make a smashing margarita. Yep, I’m going there.

  6. I can just imagine right now what the grapefruit with brown sugar and slat tastes like!
