Instructions
  1. Remove leaves and trim stem of cauliflower, leaving core intact. Place cauliflower, core side down, on a work surface. Starting at the midline of the cauliflower, slice from top to bottom into four ½" "steaks" (reserve any florets that break loose).
  2. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate. Drizzle cauliflower steaks, florets, and scallions with 4 Tbsp. oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill scallions, turning occasionally, until charred in spots, about 2 minutes. Grill cauliflower steaks until tender and charred in spots, 8–10 minutes per side. Grill any loose florets in a grill basket, tossing often, until cooked through, 5–7 minutes.
  3. Blend ginger, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and remaining 2 Tbsp. oil in a food processor, thinning with water if needed, until sauce is the consistency of yogurt; season with salt.
  4. Arrange cauliflower and scallions on a platter. Sprinkle with gochugaru and sesame seeds and drizzle with sesame oil. Serve with cilantro sauce alongside.
Recipe Notes

Slicing the cauliflower into steaks from the middle helps the head stay intact as you cut.
