This side pairs well with broiled fish, fried chicken, and Apricot-Bourbon Glazed Ham.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On two rimmed baking sheets, toss broccoli with oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer and roast until broccoli is tender and browned in spots, 15 to 18 minutes. Toss broccoli with lemon zest and juice; sprinkle with almonds.
