Lemon Butter Broccoli Spears

Posted by Solitary Dancer on February 24, 2008

Lemon Butter Broccoli Spears
by: Mimi in Maine

Ingredients

1 bunch broccoli (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
5 teaspoons unsalted butter (I use regular butter and omit the salt)
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated black pepper

Directions

   1. Cut the broccoli into spears discarding the thick end.
   2. Steam or cook the broccoli till tender; remove.
   3. Melt the butter in a large non-stick fry pan over med-high heat.
   4. When butter foams, add the lemon juice and cook for 30 seconds.
   5. Add the broccoli, lemon zest, salt, and pepper; cook tossing for 1-2 minutes till broccoli is well-coated.

    NOTE: For a quick method, use 2 (10-ounce) boxes for frozen broccoli cooked according to directions on box; then follow the above recipe.
