Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 lime, Finely grated zest and juice
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco Chipotle Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated on a Microplane
  • Salt
  • 4 heads broccoli, stems trimmed, cut into large florets
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1 cup queso fresco, crumbled, see Note

Preparation

  1. In a bowl, stir the softened butter with the lime zest, lime juice, Tabasco, honey and garlic and season lightly with salt.
  2. Light a grill. Drizzle the broccoli florets with olive oil and season with salt. Grill over moderately high heat, turning the florets occasionally, until crisp-tender and lightly charred, about 8 minutes.
  3. Transfer the broccoli to a platter and toss with the lime butter. Garnish with the queso fresco and serve.
Note: Queso fresco is a creamy, crumbly white cheese from Mexico that can be found at specialty food shops. Farmers’ cheese is a fine substitute.
