Ingredients

  • pound brussels sprouts 
  • tablespoon butter 
  • tablespoon honey 
  • servings sea salt 
  • servings pepper red

Equipment

  • bowl
  • frying pan
  • microwave

Directions

  1. Trim any loose or yellow leaves from the sprouts.
  2. Cut the stem off of each brussels sprout and then cut each one in half.
  3. In a small bowl, mix a tablespoon of soft butter (microwave it for 10-20 seconds if its coming straight from the refrigerator) with a tablespoon of honey.
  4. Heat a wide, flat skillet on medium heat.
  5. Add the honey butter and allow to bubble and melt then add the brussels sprouts. Arrange the brussels sprouts cut side down in a single layer. Cook for about 8-10 minutes uncovered until the cut side gets golden and a little charred.
  6. Sprinkle chili flakes and a generous amount of salt over the brussels sprouts.
  7. Stir the brussels sprouts around so most of them turn over cut side up.

  9. Adjust for salt and spice.
  10. Serve hot.
