Main Ingredients

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, , divided
  • 4 cups Brussels sprouts, rinsed, trimmed and halved lengthwise (4 cups),
  • Salt to taste,
  • Ground pepper to taste,
  • 2 tablespoons water,
  • Juice of half a lemon (about 1 tablespoon),

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 3 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add sprouts and arrange in a single layer, cut-sides down. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Remove lid and sprinkle sprouts with water. Cover and cook for 2 minutes more. Sprouts should just be beginning to caramelize and, when pierced with a fork, be slightly tender.

Step 2

Remove cover and increase heat slightly. When cut sides are well-caramelized, toss Brussels sprouts in the pan, drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with more salt and pepper to taste.
