I like it with cinnamon and honey under the broiler.

You could squeeze it into a stir fry. I just learned that citrus is good in simple stir fries... (I haven't tried this yet) I'm leaving it up to you to be the inventor of grapefruit chicken stir fry. Use a little honey or Agave, ginger, soy, garlic, sesame seed oil, grapefruit juice (fresh squeezed of course), and see what happens...

Grill the grapefruit before it gets segmented.

Pink grapefruit goes really well with salad and aioli as the backdrop for grilled squid pieces. Sorbet would be my choice. You could substitute the grapefruit for the lemon in a lemon meringue pie.
