Broccoli with smoked anchovy beurre noisette

Broccoli with smoked anchovy beurre noisette

This simple dish is perfect as a starter or a side


  • 40g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 4 smoked anchovy fillets, minced


  1. Heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat, add the butter and cook for a few minutes, whisking gently until it begins to foam. Keep cooking until brown specks form on the butter and it begins to have a wonderful nutty aroma.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the broccoli in a pan of slightly salted water. Drain and set aside until the butter is ready.
  3. Take the beurre noisette off the heat and stir in the anchovies. Drizzle over the broccoli.
