This recipe was first made at Food Sorcery’s outdoor BBQ cookery class with Ed Warren, our BBQ guru, everybody loved the charcoal taste coupled with the crunch of the peanuts, it was so popular we’ll be making it again – delicious!



  1. Allow approximately 70-100 grams of broccoli per person
  2. Handful of unsalted peanuts per person
  3. Soy Sauce
  4. Sesame oil
  5. Sesame seeds


  1. Wash and trim broccoli and split the stems in half
  2. Grill or griddle over a high heat for five minutes
  3. Place immediately into a bowl and cover with cling film and wrap with tea towel to retain the heat.
  4. Roast peanuts until colour darkens
  5. Combine with broccoli just before serving
  6. Drizzle with sesame oil and sprinkle over the sesame seeds
  7. Sprinkle with black or Sichuan pepper

Serve with grilled halloumi (or chicken or salmon)

Food Sorcery Tips

  1. Always use the best quality responsibly sourced charcoal available
  2. Never use fire lighters, liquid petrol based accelerants on fuel or a bbq used to prepare food – silver birch bark, animal fat (from your bacon), sun flower oil all burn well and don’t poison you. Use paper and wood to get the fire going and then place charcoal onto the coals.
  3. Generally a lack of oxygen is why a fire isn’t burning
  4. Experiment, experiment, experiment and have fun, invite your friends and family over
