Blasted Broccoli with Fish Sauce

Blasted Broccoli with Fish Sauce

  • Rating:


  • 1 1/2 pounds (675 g) broccoli crowns
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons canola or grapeseed oil
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • black pepper


Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 450°F (230°C / gas mark 8). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Trim the ends of the broccoli crowns and then cut them into individual florets, like tiny trees. Put on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle on the oil, then season with fish sauce and pepper. Use your hands to coat the florets with seasonings to ensure full coverage.

Slide the baking sheet into the oven and roast for 15 to 20 minutes, turning midway when the underside has browned a bit. When done, the stems should be just tender and tops have a little browning. Cool a few minutes before serving.
