January 29, 2011: Broccoli w/ Lime-Mayo Sauce

January 29, 2011

Here’s one of my favorite Japanese dishes: Steamed Broccoli with a Lime-Mayo Dressing. Another dish that is easy, fast, delicious and healthy. This is a cold dish so you want to steam the broccoli ahead to give it time to cool. This is wonderful and fresh side dish to any meal.

  • 1 Head Broccoli (washed and sectioned into bite sized pieces. Florettes only.)
  • 1/2 Mayonnaise (I used Japanese style which is a tad sweeter)
  • 1/2C. Plain Yoghurt
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • Dill Weed
  • Matchsticked Peppers (for accent)

Whisk together yoghurt and mayo with a sprinkling of dill weed and cool. Steam broccoli so that it still has a bit of crunch to it, immediately immerse in iced water and drain. Cool.

Assemble just before serving. I used a pastry bag (above) to apply sauce to the plate. Lay down broccoli, accent with peppers. I usually have this in the center of the table so that guest can serve themselves with hashi (chopsticks.)
