  • Light a grill. Drizzle the broccoli florets with olive oil and season with salt. Grill over moderately high heat, turning the florets occasionally, until crisp-tender and lightly charred, about 8 minutes.

  • Transfer the broccoli to a platter and toss with the lime butter. Garnish with the queso fresco and serve.

Make Ahead

The chipotle-lime butter can be refrigerated overnight. Soften it at room temperature before using.

Notes

Queso fresco is a creamy, crumbly white cheese from Mexico that can be found at specialty food shops. Farmers’ cheese is a fine substitute.
