I made this to accompany strip steaks and Garden Stuffed Baked Potatoes (from this site). Like others suggested I toasted the almond slices and used less lemon (no zest but I squeezed half a lemon). The end result was phenomenal. The almonds gave the broccoli a woodsy flavor and a nice crunch. Thank you!

I thought this was awful. Lemon flavor did nothing for the broccoli. Maybe personal preference but will not make again. Thanks anyway....

Wonderful I'll probably do this every time. I toasted the almonds on a pan and crumbled them omitted the lemon zest and used juice from 1/2 a lemon. Thanks for sharing.

Lightly seasoned with lemon the absence of garlic was a refreshing change and I resisted the urge to add it. I measured nothing just added butter lemon juice and toasted sliced almonds to accomodate my taste - and skipped the lemon zest altogether. I think it would have been lemon overkill otherwise. To preserve their crunch I added the toasted almonds just before serving which also proved to be a pretty garnish.

The theory's nice but this one is way WAY too lemony. It covered the rest of the flavors up completely. With a lot less lemon this would be excellent.

A good way to make steamed broccoli a little more than just steamed broccoli but I definitely agree with other reviewers in that the butter-lemon ratio was off. This was more like Broccoli with buttery lemon sauce.. I did add the almonds but come to think of it... didn't really notice them at all. It was a tad sour but I did like it when it just lightly covered the broccoli the rest of my family ate it but didn't enjoy it.

A little less lemon juice toast the almonds and it is 5 stars! Don't overcook the broccoli.

Yay! Finally a way to prepare broccoli that makes me actually WANT to eat it! The lemon makes it taste so summery it was great with seafood & rice. Thanks!
