Grilled Spicy Broccolini
Broccolini can be found alongside of broccoli in the supermarket.
It can tend to be a little more expensive, but is so tender and good it is worth it for a treat.
If you can’t find broccolini, just use broccoli in its place.
2 pounds or bunches broccolini
Salt and pepper, for seasoning
Vegetable oil, for greasing and coating
1 Meyer lemon or regular lemon, zested and juiced
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
2 tablespoons good quality olive oil
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Clean and oil grates. Clean and trim the woody ends, if any, on the broccolini.
In a bowl toss with a drizzling of vegetable oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Grill for 5-7 minutes or until charred and cooked but not soggy or overly wilted.
While the broccolini is grilling, combine the juice and zest of the Meyer lemon, chili flakes and olive oil in a large bowl. Whisk together.
Remove the grilled broccolini and put directly in the lemon and olive oil bowl. Toss to combine and serve immediately.
