In a small bowl or jar, mix together 2 tbsp olive oil, the lemon juice, orange juice and cumin powder, and season with salt and black pepper.

Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Brush the gem halves with the remaining olive oil and place on the griddle for 30 seconds to one minute or until charred. Remove and cool.
