I started using this recipe in 1987, when I began cooking light. It's been a favorite side dish ever since. With its lemon and Parmesan flavors, it once took second place in a cooking contest. —Alice Nulle of Woodstock, Illinois

"Very nice flavor. I steamed my broccoli instead of grilling it and then added the lemon juice and oil to it. Turned out very tasty."

"Definitely a different take on broccoli. No marinade left over for me either. This was a nice change for a side dish."

"I agree with DebbiR, I didn't have any marinade to empty. It did come out OK, though it was sticking on my grilling pan (I used an old baking tray). I would make it again, but I would use more oil and a little more lemon juice."

"I bought a teflon pan with small holes in it for my grill, this works well with this broccoli dish/great for fish/shrimp/stir fry on the grill."
