Always remember to wash your fiddleheads well, and to cook your until fork tender. Raw or under cooked fiddle heads can lead to some massive stomach upset… Just ask my mom. …    Cook until fork tender and you’re good to go!

A quick and easy vegetable dish that’s good warm or cold.
3 cups fiddleheads
2 Tbsps sesame oil
1 thinly sliced hot or sweet pepper, to suit taste
1 clove minced garlic
2 tsps lemon juice
seasoned salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds (or slivered almonds)
lemon slices to garnish
Boil or steam fiddleheads until fork tender. While cooking, heat oil in small skillet and sauté pepper and garlic until soft. Remove from heat and add lemon juice and seasonings. Drain fiddleheads and toss with the oil mixture. Sprinkle with seeds and garnish with lemon.

You can also just boil or steam the fiddle heads until fork tender,
-drain and sautee in butter and garlic until a wee bit crispy
-drizzle with lemon juice if you so choose and eat.
