Step 2

Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; stir in broccoli spears, and sauté 2 minutes. Stir in fresh lemon juice, salt, pepper, and, if desired, diced pimiento; sauté 1 minute. Serve immediately.

Step 3

I liked this dish and will definitely make it again. I used a Meyer lemon infused cooking oil to saute the broccoli after it was cooked. I liked cooking the broccoli until it was crisp tender and then adding cold water; you get a much nicer looking side dish. I served the broccoli with honey ginger salmon and whole grain rice.

So yummy - ate this two nights in a row. The lemon and peppers really go well with the butter and broccoli
