DSCN2326Simple recipe that bursts with flavour. This recipe is from Seven Fires cookbook by Francis Mallmann. When oranges are in season this is definitely my favourite orange recipe.


4 oranges

2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup plain thick Greek yoghurt


1- Cut both ends off the oranges with a bread knife.  Remove the peel.  Cut the oranges crosswise in half and set aside.

2- Sprinkle the rosemary over the oranges, and push some of the rosemary leaves into the oranges so they stick to it.  Sprinkle half the sugar on top.

3- Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Spread the remaining sugar on the cooking surface and when it begins to melt put the oranges cut side down on the sugar.  Do not move them for 3 to 4 minutes.  Adjust the heat so that the cut side burns nicely but does not smell acrid and the oranges are softened.

4- Transfer “burnt” side up to individual plates.

5- Spoon the yogurt next to the oranges.  Drizzle the burnt sugar and juices from the pan over the oranges and yogurt and serve.


  • There will be lots of smoke in the house.  Open the windows and doors or cook on the BBQ.
