1 1/8 tsp salt, divided
12 oz Broccolini
1 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add 1 teaspoon salt and cook the Broccolini in batches for 5 minutes. Remove the Broccolini with a slotted spoon. Drain and discard the water. Combine the butter, zest, and juice, stirring with a fork until well blended. Return the Broccolini to the sauce pan over medium-high heat. Stir in the butter mixture, remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, and pepper, tossing gently to coat.
