2 large red grapefruits, at room temperature
40ml dark rum
30g cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
30g packed dark brown sugar
20g plain flour
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp fine salt
1) Position a rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat the grill to high.

2) Halve each grapefruit, then loosen the segments by cutting along the membranes with a paring or grapefruit knife. Drizzle 10ml of rum evenly over each half.

3) In a small bowl, combine the butter, sugar, flour, allspice, and salt. Using your fingertips, pinch the ingredients together until the mixture forms soft crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the cut grapefruits.

4) Place grapefruits on the grill pan, and grill for about 7 minutes, until the crumbs are lightly browned, bubbling, and shiny. Serve immediately or cooled slightly.

Cook's Note: Serve these for dessert at either dinner or brunch.
