I was watching ‘The Best Thing I Ever Ate ‘ and Cat Cora (an Iron Chef)described this spicy broccoli. They didn’t give the recipe but they showed some of its preparation. This is my attempt to replicate it.
Break down broccoli into florets sauté in a splash of olive oil preferably in a cast iron skillet. When broccoli just begins to brown add garlic and more oil if needed. Sauté a minute or so then add the Calabrian chilies. You can use other spicy peppers but the ones from Calabria have a nice nuanced spiciness. Hit it all with somew salt. Let the flavors meld and add the lemon zest. Top with julienne lemon peel if desired. Enjoy.
Note. I use the crushed Calabrian chilies It comes ina jar with oil.
