Lime-Buttered Broccoli for Two

I got tired of serving broccoli the same way every time, so I prepared this recipe. The simple butter sauce turns the tender florets into something special. —Denise Albers, Freeburg, Illinois

    I made this recipe and doubled it for our family. I found that the lime was a little bit too strong for me. Next time I will make it and reduce the lime juice a little so that it's just a hint without being a strong up-front taste. If you really like lime flavorings in foods, you will enjoy this!
