If you are a fan of brussel sprouts, this is a recipe you cannot pass on trying this Fall! We have a favorite restaurant in our area called Tin Roof Bistro, where we’ve fallen in love with their amazing brussel sprouts appetizer. They were so unbelievably delicious the first time, that we have returned many, many times to enjoy them again. We love bringing out-of-town visitors to this place, for more reasons than just the brussels, but my mouth is watering just thinking about them! One day, I decided to google the recipe and came across this website that offers the ingredients and directions to make them, so I tried it out and they turned out amazing!! It’s so easy and so few ingredients, I just had to share.
What you’ll need: (I tweaked a few measurements from the recipe I found online, but I’ll tell you what I used)
about a pound of fresh brussel sprouts (cut in half long-ways)
extra-virgin olive oil
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
3-4 cloves of fresh garlic (minced)
About 1 oz minced anchovies
1-2 lemons (depending on size and taste)
2-3 Tbsp whole capers
salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400° then rinse and cut brussel sprouts. Toss in a large bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper. Begin roasting brussels, it takes about 20-30 min. I like mine nice and caramelized, so I move them to the broiler for about 5 minutes after they’re roasted.
While the brussel sprouts are roasting, begin by melting butter in a small sauce pan. Add minced garlic and anchovies, let them brown and soften. Then, add juice of lemon and capers. If you’re like me and you really like strong flavors, go with 2 lemons and 3 Tbsp of capers… otherwise, try just 1 lemon and 2 Tbsp of capers and see how it tastes to you.
When the brussel sprouts are perfectly caramelized, pour into serving dish, then add the amazing sauce you’ve just created. Toss and serve immediately!
I hope you love this recipe as much as we do! Happy Fall!
