Steamed until tender but not falling apart, the cauliflower in this dish is an ideal canvas for the warm butter sauce that’s drizzled on top, soaking in all its lemony, briny and garlicky goodness.


  1. Cook 1 head chopped cauliflower in a steamer basket set over simmering water until tender, 15 to 18 minutes. Cook 3 tablespoons butter with 4 teaspoons capers, 2 minced garlic cloves and 1 mashed anchovy fillet in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until the garlic is soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Toss the cauliflower with the butter mixture, some chopped parsley and the zest and juice of 1/2 lemon. Season with salt and pepper.
