Grapefruit Tarts

Tart, yet sweet…these charming individual tarts are filled with grapefruit curd, then bruleed for a crunchy top.


1 lb. pie pastry
1 C grapefruit curd
1/4 C granulated sugar
1 C Ready-Set-Serve Grapefruit Sections


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll out pastry and cut into four equal rounds. Using fingers, fit pastry into four tart pans with removable bottoms. Line each with parchment paper and fill with pie weights or dry beans. Bake until crisp (no soggy bottoms!), approximately 30 minutes. Cool completely.
Fill each tart shell with ¼ C grapefruit curd. Sprinkle one tablespoon sugar over each. Using a culinary torch or broiler, brulee each until browned and hard like glass.
Top each with grapefruit sections and serve.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
