broccoli rabe, (about 1 pound), trimmed and chopped
fish sauce, (see Note)
1 1/2 teaspoons
crushed red pepper
- Cook broccoli rabe in a large pot of boiling water until bright green and barely tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain in a colander and gently press out as much water as possible.
- Combine fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, garlic and crushed red pepper to taste in a small bowl; stir until the sugar is dissolved.
- Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli rabe and cook, stirring, until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the fish sauce mixture and cook, stirring, 1 minute more.
Ingredient Note: Fish sauce is a pungent Southeast Asian condiment made from salted, fermented fish. Find it in the Asian-food section of large supermarkets and in Asian specialty markets. We use Thai Kitchen fish sauce, lower in sodium than other brands (1,190 mg per tablespoon), in our nutritional analyses.
