Directions

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil with 1 tablespoon of salt. Add the broccoli to the boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the broccoli becomes a deep emerald green. Drain the broccoli and then submerge it into an ice bath. Once cooled, drain very well.

2. Meanwhile mix the extra virgin olive oil, garlic, red chili and lime in a bowl. Add the cooled broccoli and coat it in the mixture.

3. Using a very hot grill pan, add the broccoli and mixture, charring the broccoli, garlic, red chili and lime, about 2-3 minutes each side.

4. Sprinkle with salt and freshly cracked pepper and serve on a white platter.
