  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 20 ounces brussels sprouts, trimmed, outside leaves removed and quartered (about 5 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Pinch freshly ground pepper
  • 2 small shallots, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (about a half lemon)
  • Zest of half a lemon


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet pan over high heat. Add Brussels sprouts to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until dark golden brown in places, about 4 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and shallots, and cook for 30 seconds more. Add water, and cover. Reduce heat to medium-high, and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Remove lid.

  2. Add lemon juice, and drizzle with oil. Stir to combine well. Transfer to a serving platter, and garnish with lemon zest.

    This was very easy to cook. I was trying to find something with brussel sprouts that didn't have to be cooked with meat due to lent, and this was perfect with my baked Chilean salmon.
