Honey Broiled Strawberries

Roasted strawberries have a stronger flavor, and a sourness, which is a nice balance to the creaminess of the ricotta.

From Bon Appetit


  • 1/4 C Unsalted, shelled raw natural pistachios
  • 8 oz Fresh strawberries, hulled, halved or quartered if large (about 2 cups)
  • 3 T Plus 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp Finely grated lemon zest, divided
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander seeds, lightly crushed
  • 2 C Ricotta
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 T Sugar

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Spread out pistachios on a small rimmed baking sheet and toast, tossing occasionally, until golden brown, 8–10 minutes. Let cool.

  • Preheat broiler. Toss strawberries, 3 Tbsp. honey, 1 tsp. lemon zest, and coriander seeds in a shallow broiler-proof baking dish. Broil until berries are soft and juices are bubbling, 5-8 minutes. Let cool.

  • Mix ricotta, salt, remaining 1/4 cup honey, and remaining 1 teaspoon lemon zest in a medium bowl to blend. Divide among ramekins; sprinkle with sugar.

  • Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet and broil until ricotta begins to brown, 5–8 minutes. Let ricotta cool, then top with strawberry mixture and pistachios.
