This is a lovely side dish for all sorts of chinese-y, japanese-y main courses. I've served it with the miso salmon also on this site and it was delicious!

Delicious side dish!!! Next to mackerel for dinner felt very light and exceptionally satisfying.

Very nice side dish!! I have absolutely no imagination when cooking broccoli and this was a great idea! I used lemon instead of honey though and it was very tasty!

i varied this so much it's almost another recipe - BUT v good and inspiring. Use broccoli and asparagus; used oyster sauce, maple syrup and sesame seeds for the sauce. Everything else the same - ie poppy seeds but no peas. Really delicate yet tasty!

Did it without the peas and poppy seeds and it was lovely, just a little over-powering with the other dishes!

Really lovely. Added a depth of flavour to otherwise bland broccoli.

Lovely side dish, I never thought of using soy sauce on anything but ethnic food, so this was a great surprise - works a treat
