Servings1 person

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Drizzle romanesco halves on both sides with olive oil,
    rubbing in with fingers. Season well with salt. Place romanesco, cut side down, on a
    parchment-lined baking sheet and roast until tender (the florets should be firm enough to hold together without being crunchy), 30-35 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, prepare the gremolata. Add the parsley, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, 6 tbsp olive oil and ¼ tsp salt to a bowl and stir together to combine.

  3. Remove romanesco from oven and heat 2 tbsp oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add romanesco, cut side down, and sear until golden, 3-5 minutes. Flip and continue to sear, 3-4 minutes more. Remove romanesco.

  4. Take skillet off the heat and add in pine nuts. Cook in hot oil until golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan.

  5. To serve: Place romanesco on a plate, drizzle with gremolata and sprinkle with capers and pine nuts, if using. Halves can be cut into smaller chunks for easier serving.
