How To Peel A Grapefruit
I la-la-love pink grapefruit, and the Thai Pink Grapefruit Salad from Well Fed 2 is a both unexpected (dried shrimp! coconut! lime!) and delicious. The combo of sweet, salty, cool, and creamy is irresistible — as is pink grapefruit all on its own.
We’re coming into grapefruit season now, so put away those shameful serrated grapefruit spoons and take a look at this technique I learned from my dad for peeling a grapefruit. Be sure to stick around to the end of the video because my husband/videographer Dave always includes a tasty little blooper or something silly to close out the show.

“Be sure to stick around to the end of the video because my husband/videographer Dave always includes a tasty little extra to close out the show.” Where’s the tasty extra?
Great technique! I have been cooking for 50+ years and didn’t know this technique – shows you can always learn something new. Thanks!
So handy! And you are so adorable 🙂
My favorite snack is to break the segments into small bite sized pieces and put in freezer!
Yum! That’s such a great idea!
Great tutorial, I always just slice mine down the middle and scoop the fruit out, but I’ll be testing this out.
I finally tracked down dried shrimp. I’m making the grapefruit salad tonight and I’m totally excited about it. 🙂
YAY! Let me know how you like it!
It’s delicious!!! 🙂
This post changed my life. I love grapefruit and just bought some in hopes to fight off a terrible no good awful cold, but was not sure what I was going to do with them. I love juicing them with ginger, but I’m currently too lazy to pull out the juicer and clean it. I peeled them using this technique, grated some fresh ginger over it, and topped with a sprinkle of coconut sugar. Spicy and delightful! Thank you for sharing this 🙂
Grapefruit segments with gingers sounds so good! Thanks for sharing!
Where did you find dried shrimp? i’ve looked all over and all i can find is fish food not human food 🙁
I found mine in the Hispanic section of my grocery store. You might be able to find them in a Mexican or Asian market near you. You can also get them from Amazon. You want something like this:
If you can’t find them, you can just omit. It will still taste awesome.
Ok, here is a crazy question. I know it is way out there but here it goes. WHERE IS THE RECIPE?!
I forgot to say thank you.:)
