Ooh this is a tasty side dish. It will go great with many dishes especially spicy dishes full of flavor. Or fish dishes, such as Crispy Black Sea Bass and Spicy Spanish Mackerel.

Lime garlic green cauliflower is quick and easy to create, making it a true time-saver dish. It’s a weeknight glory and will have your family panting in anticipation.

I used green cauliflower for this dish, but you can easily substitute with white or purple cauliflower.

I really like the zing of the lime in this dish, I just can’t get enough.
