  1. Place broccoli florets in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Stir 2 teaspoons lemon juice into water in a small bowl and pour the mixture into the skillet.
  3. Cover and steam until broccoli is bright green and tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. While broccoli is steaming, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and stir in garlic and salt; turn heat to low and let the garlic gently fry until golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  5. Drain water from cooked broccoli and return to skillet; sprinkle with 2 more teaspoons lemon juice and the butter and garlic mixture.
  6. Sprinkle broccoli with black pepper, toss to combine, and season with a bit more pepper if desired.
  7. Serve hot.
