Roasted Broccoli with Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette and Marcona Almonds

Serves 2

1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
kosher salt, for sprinkling
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon smoked sweet paprika
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1 pinch kosher salt
1/4 cup marcona almonds

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Toss the broccoli florets on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a hefty sprinkling of kosher salt. Roast for 20 minutes.

2. While the broccoli is roasting, prepare the vinaigrette. Heat 1/4 cup of olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat until quite warm (about 2 minutes). Stir in the minced garlic and the smoked paprika and remove the pan from the heat. Let stand 10 minutes.

3. Put the sherry vinegar and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the paprika oil. Try to leave most of the solids (paprika and garlic) in the skillet, if possible.

4. After 20 minutes, remove the broccoli from the oven and toss the marcona almonds on top. Drizzle with a few tablespoons of the vinaigrette, toss, and serve immediately.
