    Once browned, add cauliflower, tomatoes sliced lemon and onions to the same sheet pan with the lamb, along with 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil (or as needed to generously coat) and kosher salt to taste. Toss well and spread cauliflower in a single, even layer. Return pan to broiler, and broil cauliflower for 3 to 6 minutes, stirring once or twice, or until tender and caramelized.
