Sicilian Broccoli with Anchovies Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6


  • 2 tablespoons drained, canned anchovy fillets
  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons soft bread crumbs
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
How to cook Sicilian Broccoli with Anchovies:
  • Wash the broccoli and separate into florets, leaving as much stem as possible. Cook in boiling, salted water, uncovered, for about 6-8 minutes until just tender.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the bread crumbs and cook over a fairly high heat until crisp and golden, stirring often.
  • Add the garlic and anchovies and cook for 2-3 minutes, mashing the anchovies so they dissolve into the oil.
  • Drain the broccoli and transfer to a warm serving dish.
  • Sprinkle with lemon juice and then the bread crumb mixture, scraping the crumbs from the pan.
