Steam-Grilled Brussels Sprouts with Honey, Parmesan and Almonds
Serves
Makes 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 1 ounce sliced almonds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¾ cup chicken stock
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese


Procedure
Make sure the chicken stock is at room temperature or even better near boiling point. When browning nuts always remove them from your frying pan when brown. The frying pan might remain hot for a while even off the stovetop and the nuts might still burn. You can replace the honey by two tablespoons of brown sugar. Replace the chicken stock by vegetable stock for a vegetarian side dish. If you’re not really into sweet, use less honey and add some lemon juice.

In a frying pan using no fat roast the almonds until golden brown. Set aside. Trim and half the Brussels sprouts. In a metal bowl mix the Brussels sprouts with olive oil, honey, pepper and salt. Preheat the grill on medium heat. Once hot place the Brussels sprouts flat side down on the grill. Grill for approximately 2 minutes until grill marks appear. Turn the sprouts, add the chicken stock and place the lid on the steam grill. Steam for around 4 minutes or cooked to liking. Remove from the grill to a metal bowl and flavor with lemon zest using the finest grater. Season with pepper and salt. Finish with roasted almonds and coarsely grated Parmesan cheese.

Serve as a side dish.
