  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and scored
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped blanched hazelnuts
  • Ground pepper


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, bring water and coarse salt to a boil. Add brussels sprouts, trimmed and scored; reduce heat to a simmer. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 20 minutes (add more water if pan becomes dry).

  2. Uncover; raise heat to medium-high, and cook until water has evaporated. Add butter and hazelnuts; cook until nuts are fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and ground pepper.
