Grilled Sriracha Broccoli

Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables. It is easy for me to fix just one serving of it, since Ethan does not like it, and it is so delicious. I usually roast or steam it, but those methods will be put on the back burner, because grilled broccoli is where it is at.

This grilled broccoli was so quick and easy. The sweet and spicy glaze, made with pantry ingredients I always keep around, made this addictive. I have been raving about this for a week now, and I can't wait to make it again! The original recipe called for hoisin, which I was out of, so I used ponzu, which is like a citrus soy sauce. It was an excellent sub, so I know that soy sauce would also be a good substitute!

4 tablespoons of Olive Oil
2 tablespoons of Ponzu, Hoisin, or Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon of Sriracha, add more for more heat
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of Sesame Oil
1/4 teaspoon of Dried Ginger
1 large head of Broccoli, cut into three sections

First, in a small bowl whisk together all of the ingredients (minus the broccoli.)

Now, place the broccoli on a plate and pour the glaze evenly over the broccoli, spreading it with a brush, coating both sides and using all of the glaze.

Next, place the broccoli, flat side down, on a hot grill.  Grill for 4 minutes, then flip and cook for 2-3 more minutes, until the broccoli has a char and is slightly tender.


Happy Cooking,
