Lemon Butter Broccoli

I was looking for a great new side dish to go with our Easter dinner when I found this recipe on Taste and Tell.  I wanted something simple but flavorful and that was exactly what this side dish was.

1 bunch broccoli (cut into bite-sized pieces)
1 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Steam the broccoli.  While the broccoli is steaming, melt the butter in a small sauce pan. When the butter is melted whisk in the lemon juice and lemon zest.  Cook for 60 seconds then remove from heat.  Toss the broccoli in the butter mixture and season with salt and pepper.
