Ingredients

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4 cup Brussels sprouts, rinsed, trimmed, and halved lengthwise

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoon water

  • Juice of half a lemon, about 1 Tbsp.

Directions

  1. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet heat 3 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Arrange sprouts in a single layer, cut sides down. 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.

  2. Remove cover and increase heat slightly. When cut sides are well-caramelized, toss Brussels sprouts in pan, drizzle with lemon juice, and sprinkle with more salt and pepper to taste.
