Noms: Brussel Sprouts With Sriracha Honey And Lime (Instagram-ification)
I recently (as in two days ago, haha) tried brussel sprouts for the first time and OMG these little things are my new favorite vegetable. They cook up so fast, are a cancer fighting food, and there are about 934305.6 ways to prepare them! I found this recipe while Pinteresting (it’s a verb now…) and I knew I had to make it. Brussel sprouts AND my favorite hot sauce in the world? I’m ALLLLLLLL in!!
As promised to my Instagram followers, here’s the recipe for the delicious brussel sprouts I had for dinner last night! Well, most of the comments on that post were attempts to bribe me into becoming their live-in chef but I think posting the recipe is a good compromise.
Brussel Sprouts with Sriracha Honey and Lime
Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cooking Time: 5-10 minutes | Serves 2
Recipe adapted from From Dahlias to Doxies.
What You’ll Need:
- 2 cups of brussel sprouts
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. Sriracha
- 3 Tbsp. honey
- 1 Tbsp. lime juice
- pinch of salt
1. Trim the ends off of the brussel sprouts and cut them in half.
2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat.
3. Add the brussel sprouts to the pan, cut side down, and season with salt to taste. **oil will be hot so be careful not to get burned!** Fry until golden brown on the flat side. I usually cover them in the skillet so the steam helps cook them through a bit faster. Once they are done, remove them from the heat.
Note: I like my brussel sprouts to be a little crisp so I only cook mine for about 5-7 minutes. Cook them longer if you want them to be more tender.
4. In a small bowl, mix together your Sriracha, honey and lime juice. You can add more or less Sriracha to taste, I love the stuff so the spicier the better for me!
5. Add your brussel sprouts to the Sriracha mixture and toss together to coat the sprouts with sweet and spicy goodness. Serve while warm!
I ate mine just like this in the bowl that I had mixed the Sriracha in. But next time I think I’ll serve them as a side dish or maybe even as a meal over steamed rice. Really the possibilities are endless. ^_^
