fried brussels sprouts
Recipe type: appetizer
  • Brussels sprouts, bottoms trimmed and any loose leaves removed
  • oil for frying
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • mayonnaise seasoned with lemon juice (optional)
  • olive oil or truffle oil
  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  1. In a saucepan heat oil (canola, peanut, rice bran) until temperature reaches 350f (180c). Take a sharp knife and slice halfway through Brussels sprout, turn 90 degrees and make another cut halfway down to make a cross. This will help the sprout to open up. Add sprouts to oil and fry until golden brown. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Season with sea salt, fresh pepper and Parmesan cheese. Serve will still warm.
  2. The Culinary Chase’s Note: To add another layer of deliciousness, sprinkle Brussels sprouts with truffle salt or a good splash of truffle oil (or both). The combination of the truffle oil and Parmesan is out of this world, it’s so good! Enjoy!
