This fruit dessert has a caramelized-sugar topping much like that of the classic creme brulee (but it doesn't require owning a kitchen torch). 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.


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


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.
