Spiced carmelised satsumas with pomegranate & pistachio
By now you’ve probably had your fill of turkey and Christmas pud, so we have a deliciously easy recipe which works nicely for dessert or even for a healthy breakfast. Another excellent excuse to take advantage of this yummy dish is that satsumas are also in season in January – all the better! If you are preparing a breakfast we recommend substituting the ice cream with greek yogurt for a protein boost.
To make a two-person serving of carmelised satsumas you will need:
- 4 satsumas (or oranges), peeled and halved
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp nutmeg
- 1/2 pomegranate
- 1 handful of unshelled pistachios
- Ice cream (or yogurt) to serve
- Place your halved satsumas or oranges into an oven-proof dish – the beauty of cooking fruits from the orange family is that they become juicier when cooked, so be sure to keep the juice for serving as it makes a delicious ‘sauce’.
- Drizzle honey over the satsumas and sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg on top, then place under a high grill for about 10 minutes until the tops are just starting to go black at the edges.
- Once the satsumas are done place them into an appropriate serving dish, ensuring you pour their juice over the top. Scoop out and scatter over the pomegranate seeds and a few pistachios.
- Finish off with a generous scoop of ice cream or, for breakfast, greek yogurt. Enjoy!
