Fried Brussels Sprouts


  • 1 lb Brussels sprout
  • 4 -6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 -4 garlic cloves, minced
  • lemon juice, my addition, for garnish (optional)
  • salt, to taste
  • white pepper, to taste


  1. Remove brown outer leaves of brussel sprouts. Cut the brussel sprouts in half. NOTE: Original recipe left brussel sprouts whole. It's your choice to cut in half or leave whole.
  2. In sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the brussel sprouts and fry, stirring occasionally, until very dark brown, almost charred, but NOT burnt.
  3. The last minute of cooking, add the garlic and stir in to combine. Be careful not to burn the garlic!
  4. Season to taste with salt, white pepper and lemon juice if using. Serve warm.
