Grilled Broccoli With Lime Butter

Add some zip to your broccoli by grilling it and topping it off with a smooth, delicious and zesty lime butter! The slightly charred florets, lime dressing and crumbled queso fresco create a side dish that may just be the main attraction!


  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1/2 large lime
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper sauce
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 large heads of broccoli (about 1 1/2 pounds)—stems trimmed, cut into large florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco


  1. In a small bowl, stir butter, lime zest, lime juice, red pepper sauce, and honey until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Heat Memphis Grill to 575° with the Indirect Savorizer® in place and hood closed.
  3. In large bowl, stir broccoli florets, olive oil and salt. Grill florets directly on grate, turning the florets occasionally, until crisp-tender and lightly charred, about 8 minutes.
  4. Transfer the broccoli to a platter and toss with lime butter from Step 1. Garnish with queso fresco and serve.
  5. Farmers’ cheese can be substituted for the queso fresco.
