  1. This is a very simple recipe.
  2. Finely paste the anchovy then add the olive oil, sugar and salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk well together.
  3. Add the herbs and oil and whisk well again, finally add the finely chopped rocket and mix well. Its best to leave the dressing for about 2 hours.
  4. Next, trim the broccoli leaving a few leaves, any stalks that are a little thick just split down the middle or into quarters so you end up with all the stalks are all roughly the same thickness.
  5. Boil the broccoli in plenty of boiling salted water and drain well, keep warm.
  6. Pile the warm broccoli onto four plates evenly and spoon over the dressing, leave for 2-3 minutes then eat.
