Ingredients

2 heads broccoli, trimmed into florets and steamed for 4 to 5 minutes

Sweet Spicy and Tangy:

2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

1 tablespoon light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced

4 to 5 long strips lemon peel

1 teaspoon salt

Hot Lemon Garlic Oil:

1/4 cup olive oil

2 cloves garlic, smashed and thinly sliced

2 long, wide strips lemon peel

1 lemon, juiced

Salt and about 10 grinds freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Divide the cooked broccoli into 2 serving bowls.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, brown sugar, and chili flakes until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and lemon peel and cook briefly until beginning to turn golden brown, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Add the vinegar mixture and salt and simmer 2 minutes longer.
  4. Pour dressing over half the broccoli florets and serve immediately.

Hot Lemon Garlic Oil:

  1. Heat the olive oil, garlic, and lemon peel over medium heat and let sizzle gently for a few minutes until garlic is lightly browned. Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper and heat for another minute. Pour dressing over half the broccoli florets and serve immediately.
