Grilled Sriracha Broccoli

When I was trying to come up with sides for my recipe swap, these delicious Bang Bang Chicken Skewers, I remembered my friend Mary Ellen raving about grilled broccoli. She's made a few variations but this Grilled Sriracha Broccoli sounded like the perfect accompaniment to the chicken skewers.


I've never grilled broccoli before but I think it's my new favorite way to prepare it. I used my charcoal grill since I needed it for the chicken skewers, but I'll definitely try my indoor grill pan as well. I had 3 broccoli crowns so I should have doubled the sauce - it was delectable. We were dragging our pieces through the sauce left at the bottom of the baking dish. So, so good.


The broccoli had a nice smoky flavor and the heat from the sriracha wasn't too overpowering (I used maybe 2 teaspoons) and was offset by the sweetness from the hoisin sauce. I can't wait to make this one again.

Grilled Sriracha Broccoli
As seen on Mary Ellen's Cooking Creations

4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce (more or less depending on your tolerance for spice)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 large head of broccoli cut into three sections

Whisk the first five ingredients to make the glaze.

Pour the glaze evenly onto the broccoli and spread with a brush.

Place flat side down on a hot grill. Grill 4 minutes, flip and grill 2-3 more minutes until charred and slightly tender. Serve immediately
Pin It!
