Mango Brulee

Mango Brûlée

Recipe from Steamy Kitchen's Healthy Asian Favorites Cookbook
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 2 fresh mangos
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of ground nutmeg


  1. Turn on the broiler. Position the rack 6 inches below the heat source. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Cut through the mango on either side of the pit as evenly as possible. (Here is a great video tutorial on cutting mangos)
  3. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and sprinkle on top of each mango slice. Place the mango slices on the prepared baking sheet. Make sure the mango halves are level so the sugar does not spill out. If you need to, use crumpled tin foil to steady the mango.
  4. Broil for 3 minutes, or until the sugar has caramelized. Alternatively, you can use a creme brûlée torch to caramelize the sugar (which is what I did).
