Broiled Oranges With Toasted Coconut Recipe

Broil Oranges with Toasted Coconut create a refreshing dessert or palate cleanser between courses. You may cook these for a quick afternoon snack or brunch because they're easy.


– 1 orange, sliced in half – 2 teaspoons brown sugar – Handful sweetened, shredded coconut


Turn on the grill high. Put parchment paper on a baking sheet.

Step 1

Take off any orange seeds that are on the outside. For extra flavor, you can cut the orange into slices by running a knife between the meat and the peel.

Step 2

If you don't have a grapefruit spoon, this makes it easy to take off. Be careful not to cut through the peel because you want to keep it whole.

Step 3

On each half of the orange, rub a teaspoon of brown sugar in. Put on the baking sheet and put under the grill.  

Step 4

I used the lower shelf of my oven so it was far away. I would set the grill to low if you are close.

Step 5

For about 6 minutes, broil until bubbly and a little browned. Put the coconut in a small, dry pan over medium-low heat.  

Step 6

Stir the coconut every so often while it turns golden brown. Take it off the heat.

Step 7

Put the warm oranges on a plate with the toasted coconut. You can add cinnamon or ginger if you want.
