If you don’t want to fire up the grill, heat the oven to 425 and roast for about 10 minutes.

6 cups fresh broccoli florets

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Rinse broccoli florets in a bowl, drain in a colander and drain thoroughly.

Put broccoli in large bowl and add 2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil to taste.  Sprinkle with Kosher Salt. Kosher salt’s coarse, crystal flakes stick better and don’t dissolve as easily as the finer cube-shaped grains of table salt. Kosher salt has larger, irregular crystals with lots of surface area and some say it tastes better because of that.

Set your grill temperature to high. Prepare a sheet of aluminum foil large enough for all the broccoli to fit on in a single layer. Or use a grill pan http://amzn.to/1MloyIw

Place your grill pan on the grill or lay the foil on the grill and quickly spread the broccoli out evenly upon it. Make sure to crimp up the side edges of the foil for easy retrieval after cooking.

Close the grill’s lid and cook at high heat for 8-10 minutes. (8 minutes for crisper broccoli, 10 minutes for more “well-done” softer broccoli.

When finished cooking, remove the broccoli from the grill by grabbing the foil at the crimped-up sides or use hotpads to remove the grill pan. Place the broccoli into your serving bowl.
