Flash Fried Brussels Sprout

I love brussels sprout. I know a lot of people think they are weird or taste funny but if made right they can be so delicious! I never had them growing up. We ate a lot of vegetables but Brussels Sprouts were just not in the rotation. It wasn’t until I was older and working on a British ship that I tasted them and really liked them. There’s was a simple preparation, roasted with a little salt and pepper, served as a side dish to yorkshire pudding and a sunday roast (also things I had never eaten). Since then I’ve been experimenting with various ways to make brussels sprouts and keep them interesting.

Brussels Sprouts: 


  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/4 tsp of ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder

Cooking: Cut off the bottom of the brussels sprouts and split in half. Heat vegetable oil to 375F and fry for 5-6 mins. Remove from oil and place on a tray lined with paper towels to remove all excess oil.


In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, lime juice, red pepper flakes, salt, ground pepper and garlic powder. Once excess oil is removed place brussels sprouts in a bowl and drizzle the olive oil mixture then toss until all brussels sprouts are coated.


Buen Provecho!
