Ingredients

  • 2 ripe mangoes Ataulfo, Keitt or other variety
  • 4 tsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. honey optional
  • 4 tsp. orange juice
  • 1 lime cut into wedges

Instructions

  1. Turn on broiler.
  2. Slice mango lengthwise 1/2-inch from center line to avoid pit. Rotate mango and slice other side, resulting in two “cheeks.” Save center portion for another use. Repeat with second mango. Carefully cut 1/2-inch cross-hatch pattern on a diagonal in pulp without cutting through mango skin.
  3. Sprinkle a teaspoon of brown sugar over each mango, then evenly drizzle honey, if using, and orange juice. Set mangoes on baking sheet.
  4. Broil mangoes until tops are golden, about 5 to 8 minutes. Serve mangoes in peel with lime wedges for squeezing over top and use teaspoon to scoop out pulp.
