Drizzle with remaining olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and a grind of two or black pepper. Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Remove lid and sprinkle sprouts with water. Cover and cook for 2 minutes more. Sprouts should just be beginning to caramelize and, when pierced with a fork, slightly tender. Remove cover and increase heat slightly.
