Servings: 4 people
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 2 cloves garlic grated
- 1 tsp ginger grated
- ¼ tsp chili flakes
- 2 mint leaves chopped
- 2 Thai basil leaves chopped
Fried Brussel Sprouts
- 16 oz brussel sprouts chopped finely or shaved
- vegetable oil
- sea salt
- ⅛ cup peanuts chopped
- ⅛ cup fried onions
In a small bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the soy-ginger vinaigrette. Let stand for 1 hour.
Line a large bowl with paper towels. This will be for the fried brussel sprouts.
In a heavy pan or cast iron skillet, pour in enough oil to fully coat the bottom of the pan. Turn the heat to medium high. Once the oil is very hot but not smoking, add enough brussel sprouts to fill the pan in a single layer. Do not overcrowd. Cook until the brussel sprouts are browned, about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally to turn. Repeat until all of the sprouts are fried, adding more oil if needed. Place the fried sprouts into the paper towel lined bowl to remove excess grease.
Remove the paper towels from the bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the vinaigrette to the sprouts and toss well. Top with peanuts and fried onions.
Chopped Brussel Sprouts: I use this chopper with the largest blade to cut my sprouts. You can also use the pre-washed and shaved sprouts. You can also cut or shave them yourself.
Fried Onions: I use the ones that come in the container pre-made on the shelf at the store.
