Brussels Sprouts with Sriracha Honey and Lime

Don't be afraid! They're just tiny, little cabbages. 

Ryan was unsure when I first uttered the words: Brussels Sprouts. But as soon as I mentioned that I would be dousing them in Sriracha, he was more than willing to try 'em. And they turned out to be outrageously good! Now I can't wait to drizzle other veggies with this Sriracha honey lime sauce. It almost tastes like an eggroll, minus all those extra calories.

If you have non-believers-in-Brussels-sprouters in your house, try this one out on them. You just might make them believe...

Pan-Fried Brussels Sprouts Tossed in a Sriracha Honey Lime Sauce

  • 1 lb. brussel sprouts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Sriracha
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • salt
Trim the ends off the Brussels sprouts and then cut each one in half. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts to pan cut side down (Careful: hot oil may splatter!) and season with salt. Fry until golden brown.

In a small bowl, whisk together Sriracha, honey, and lime juice. Taste and add more Sriracha to desired heat level. Remove Brussels sprouts and add to a bowl. Toss with Sriracha mixture. Serve while it's still hot!

I'm sharing these tasty little cabbages over at Unveil Your GeniusCookie Nut Creations, Mommy By Day Crafter By Night, Be Colorful, Crafty Scrappy Happy, and 30 Handmade Days.

Thanks Mique, at 30 Handmade Days, for featuring my Brussels Sprouts!

  5. I actually quite like brussels sprouts, if they are prepared well. I've never cooked with sriracha, though. It sounds really delicious! My opinion is, you can't go wrong with anything that tastes like an eggroll!

  6. I just made this and it was fantastic! I was a little worried because I know brussels sprouts are usually a winter veggie, but I saw them at the store and I couldn't resist. Then I saw your sriracha-infused recipe and was sold on it. Thanks for sharing!!

  7. I just made these tonight for dinner and they were absolutely AMAZING. ^_^

    1. Yes! I'm so glad you made them and like them! It kind of makes me want to make them again...tonight. haha

  8. I am flattered that you tried my recipe! I bet each bite was just divine!
