  1. Preheat grill to medium (300°F–350°F). Cut mangoes in half lengthwise from stem end just off-center on both sides to remove pits. Peel mangoes and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl combine sugar, lime zest and (if desired) ginger; sprinkle on cut sides of mango halves, pressing lightly to coat. Place mango halves, sugared side down, on grill. Grill, covered, 3–5 minutes.
  3. Remove from grill. Place 1 mango half in each of 4 small dessert bowls. Add 1 or 2 scoops of sorbet, sprinkle with toasted coconut, top with raspberries, and serve.
