1.5 lbs. trimmed Brussels sprouts, sliced in half lengthwise
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. fish sauce
2 tsp. brown sugar
Sprinkle of salt to taste
In a small liquid measuring cup, combine olive oil, fish sauce, and brown sugar. Whisk to combine.
In a medium bowl, coat Brussels sprouts in fish sauce mixture. Pour into a cast iron pan. Cook on high heat to get a good sear on the flat side of the Brussel sprouts. Either continue to cook via stovetop, or place the cast iron with seared Brussel sprouts in a 400° oven for 15 minutes, or until tender.
The saltiness of the fish sauce should subside a bit during cooking. Sprinkle a little salt right off the heat to add a bit more yum. Enjoy!
