Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a griddle pan or heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add broccoli; cook about 10 minutes or until blistered on all sides, turning occasionally. Transfer to a medium bowl.

  • Meanwhile, in a small skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper; cook about 5 minutes or until garlic is golden, stirring frequently.

  • Pour oil mixture over broccoli, tossing to coat. Let stand 10 minutes. Stir in lemon peel, lemon juice and salt.


Tip: Make sure the broccoli is completely dry before cooking to prevent it from steaming in the pan.
