- 2 (6-ounce) bunches fresh broccolini, trimmed

- 1/3 cup water

- 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided

- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

- 1/4 cup sliced almonds

- 1/4 cup chopped shallot

- 1 tablespoon thinly sliced garlic

- 1 teaspoon lemon zest


1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add broccolini and water; cover and cook, shaking the pan often, until bright green and tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer the broccolini to a plate; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt.


2. Wipe the pan clean; reduce heat to medium. Add butter, almonds, shallot, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until the almonds are toasted, the butter smells nutty, and the shallot is translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.

3. Drizzle the broccolini with the almond mixture; sprinkle with lemon zest.
