Ginger and Honey Broiled Grapefruit

Remember that time I bought way too many grapefruits?
I do.
Ive been eating them at all times of the day. And drinking them.. but more on that later.
Today I made a twist on the old classic, broiled grapefruit. But I added more flavor by way of a spice and a different sweetener than the old classic calls for.

Broiled Grapefruit with Fresh Ginger and Honey
1 Grapefruit, any variety
.5 teaspoon of freshly ground ginger
2 T honey

First things first, turn your broiler onto 500* F.
To prepare your grapefruit for broiling, cut it in half. Then, using a small sharp paring knife, cut the entire way around the out side of the fruit between the flesh and the pith like so:

Then cut between each membrane.

I know, I know, its miserable and tedious. BUT extremely necessary if you want a pleasurable eating experience. Trust me.
Then grate your fresh ginger with a microplane. It will all stick to the underside of the microplane. Thats cool.
Scrape about 1/4 tsp out with a knife and spread if on one half of the grapefruit. Repeat.
Then drizzle each side with about a tablespoon of honey.

Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet and broil on 500* F for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven, grab a spoon and eat.
Excellent snack or eat as part of a breakfast. OR top with ginger ice cream and you have dessert!! <– kicking myself for not thinking of this before I ate it all.. Good thing I have 5 more grapefruits.
