Lemon Brussels Sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 large lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, shallow skillet over medium high heat. Arrange the Brussels sprouts, cut side down, in a single layer and cook undisturbed until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the water to the pan and cover; reduce heat to low and simmer until the sprouts are tender, about 6 or 7 minutes.
  2. Increase the heat to medium high and toss the Brussels sprouts with the honey, lemon juice and zest. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the liquid in the pan evaporates, 2 or 3 minutes more.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.
