Step 1

Trim the stalks of the broccoli using a sharp knife, to cut away any leaves, and woody stems. Slice the head of broccoli in half, lengthways.

Step 2

Refresh the broccoli halves in a bowl full of ice-cold water for 10 minutes. Remove and dry on clean kitchen paper.

Step 3

Mix in a bowl the soy sauce, sesame seeds, sweet chilli sauce, sesame oil and lemon juice. Use 2 tablespoons boiling hot water, to dissolve the miso paste and then mix into other ingredients.

Step 4

Place the broccoli halves in a large flat dish and pour over the marinade mix. Turn the broccoli pieces over and over, coating all sides. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Step 5

Heat a barbecue plate or grill plate to medium high. Brush the plate with sesame oil. Place the broccoli halves with cut side down and cook for 3 minutes, then turn over and cook the other side for 2-3 minutes, depending on the size of the broccoli piece.

Serve the broccoli immediately while warm drizzled with extra sweet chilli sauce, or allow to cool and cut up for a tasty broccoli salad.
