So, somehow I missed the train to Brussels...
Brussel Sprouts, I mean.
I did not eat Brussel Sprouts growing up,
and have never heard anyone say anything nice about them...
First, my friend, Julie from my Book Club
Like craves them love them.
So, one month she made them for us to try;
And I liked them,
I even noted my like for them here.
Then on my anniversary,
My Love and I got decked up real fancy and
went out to celebrate to a local seafood grill
(to which we had never been before)
and the server suggested that I try her fave,
flash-fried Brussel Sprouts.
Since I was in celebration mode,
I went for it!
I N C R E D I B L E.
And now I'm seeing them everywhere;
I've even noticed them in the grocery store now
much more than I ever have before.
AND the health benefits of them...
good grief, they're quite amazing.
The other day I was craving those
little flash-fried sprouts.
And I wanted them.
So, I made them.
they were SO good
(I say they were SO good,
My Love says they were alright).
They tasted exactly the way I remembered them.
Ah! I just can't get over how GOOD they were.
So, here's what you do:
Strip a package of Brussel Sprouts of each of their little tiny leaves,
then (30 minutes later! Yeah, it seriously took me that long)
heat your skillet to a medium heat,
and cover with Olive Oil
then put ALL those little leaves in it.
Fry until the leaves are wilted and slightly crisp
and then sprinkle with just a tad bit of sea salt
(this is the restaurant's recipe,
I didn't have any sea salt at the time,
so I just used the salt I had)
and then serve.
We had ours with some Lemon-Dill Tilapia
and the whole meal was just...
I can't even think of another way to describe it.
So, as good as this meal was...
two hours later and even later into the evening,
So, Brussel Sprouts have been banned for now...
at least cooked this way or if my husband is going to be anywhere near our home.
I'm anxious to try some other recipes;
please don't MAKE me rely on Pinterest,
what do you have for me??
