Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 1 lb broccoli florets
  • 1 lemons

Oil and Spices

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2.5 tsp kosher salt


  • 2 oz Parmigiano-Reggiano® cheese

Special Equipment

  • perforated grill pan


  • 2½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 pound broccoli florets, about 6 cups
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano® cheese


  1. Fill a large saucepan with water to within a few inches of the top. Add 2 teaspoons of the salt to the water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli to the boiling water and cook until bright green and crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the saucepan and plunge into an ice bath to rapidly cool them. Then remove the broccoli from the ice bath and drain.

  2. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F). Brush the cooking grates clean. Preheat a grill pan over direct medium heat for about 10 minutes.

  3. In a large bowl mix the broccoli, oil, lemon zest, and the remaining ½ teaspoon salt.

  4. Spread the broccoli on the grill pan in a single layer. Grill over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the broccoli is warm and just begins to brown, 4 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally.

  5. Remove from the grill and garnish with the cheese. Serve warm.

Try it!

My advice is if you are thinking about trying this recipe, then go for it. My family and I just ate this dish with our dinner. We did not have a lemon to zest so we used just a little bit of lemon juice. I don't know why this recipe tasted so good, but this dish is awesome.
