Mango Brulee with Lime

Source: Martha Stewart Living, September 2011

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 2 mangoes, halved and pitted
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Directions

  1. Heat broiler to high with rack 6 inches from heat source. Scatter 1 tablespoon sugar evenly over cut side of each mango half. Immediately broil on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet until mangoes are softened and sugar is hardened and golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve warm with lime wedges.

Cook's Notes

Turbinado sugar (a.k.a. raw sugar) creates a crunchy crust and has a deep flavor, but regular granulated sugar can be substituted in a pinch. To get two even halves from one mango, slice the fruit lengthwise along each side of the pit.
