Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once the butter stops foaming and its solids start to brown, turning the butter golden in color, stir in the pistachios, olives, crushed red pepper flakes and lemon zest and juice. Stir the plumped raisins and any remaining vermouth into the mix. Remove from the heat.

Transfer the broiled cauliflower to the sauté pan, stirring to coat and incorporate. Serve immediately.

Note: Inspired by a dish by Cathal Armstrong, chef and co-owner of Restaurant Eve in Old Town Alexandria, Va. He simply sautés cauliflower until golden brown, then adds loads of thinly sliced garlic and freshly ground black pepper. This recipe takes it a step further, ratcheting up the heat to mimic the Indian dish gobi (cauliflower) matar (peas). The dish can be prepared an hour in advance and held in a warm oven, but it is best when cooked just before serving.
