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
  • Honey
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 pomegranate
  • 1 handful of unshelled pistachios
  • Ice cream (or yogurt) to serve


  1. 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’.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. Finish off with a generous scoop of ice cream or, for breakfast, greek yogurt. Enjoy!
