Number of Servings: 4


    1 pint Brussels sprouts, outer leaves removed, bottoms trimmed, halved
    1/2 stick butter
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 lemon, grated for rind, then halved


1. In a medium cooking pot with a tight-fitting lid, set a steamer basket over 1 1/2" water. Add Brussels sprouts, and steam over high heat until tender, about 10 minutes.

2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add salt and cook, watching carefully, until butter sizzles, browns slightly, and gives off a nutty aroma. Squeeze juice from lemon halves into the pan and add the zest. Stir in Brussels sprouts; cook, shaking pan occasionally, until warmed through.

    Very Good
    Excellent recipe for the Brussels sprout lover. Burnt butter gives a great nutty flavour and the lemon adds a zip that is refreshing.
