1) Cut each grapefruit in half through the middle NOT the stem end or blossom end of the grapefruit. This way you will expose each segment. Cut a small slice off the bottom of each grapefruit so the grapefruit won’t wobble when placed on the baking sheet.
2) Use a sharp knife to cut around each segment. Do not cut all the way through the peel of the grapefruit – cut only enough to loosen each segment so that it can be easily scooped out after broiling.
3) In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, coconut, coconut oil and cinnamon. Use your fingers or a fork to blend it all together.
4) Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the top of each grapefruit half.
5) Place grapefruit on a baking sheet and place under the broiler for 3 minutes or until the sugar topping in melted, bubbly and browned – but not burned.
6) Remove from oven and sprinkle each grapefruit with a small amount of salt. Serve while still warm.
