Altered ingredient amounts. I made this to accompany steaks. Like others suggested, I toasted the almonds and used less lemon (no zest but I squeezed half a lemon). The end result was phenomenal. The almonds gave the broccoli a woodsy flavour and a nice crunch. Thank you! - 24 Jul 2008

Yummy, but a little too lemony as other have said. I would definitely make it again though, with less lemon! - 27 Nov 2010
