    This was very easy to put together and I love grapefruit so I especially loved it but I was hoping the sauce would be thicker. It doesn't thicken up at all so the grapefruit makes a mess of your plate. I would serve it on it's on dish so it doesn't make the rest of your meal taste like grapefruit.
