  1. Preheat the grill to high. Cut 5mm off the top and bottom of each grapefruit to help them stand up under the grill, then halve each horizontally. Use a sharp knife to cut between each segment, leaving the fruit in the skin.
  2. Brush ¼ tsp honey over each grapefruit half, then grill cutside up for 3-5 mins until caramelised. Top with the remaining honey, then serve with the yogurt and mint. Sprinkle with pistachios, if you like.

Tip: Honey and lemon is a classic combination, but honey's floral flavour works just as well with grapefruit.
