  • 400 g bimi
  • Flakey Sea salt
  • Chili flakes
  • Olive oil



Heat a grill pan until smoking hot.


Add the bimi and drizzle them with a drop of olive oil.


While you keep turning them let char and grill on all sides.


If the florets are charring too fast, lean them off the sides of the pan while the stems keep grilling until al dente.


Remove from the pan and while still hot sprinkle them with sea salt and chili flakes.


Serve immediately.
