Shaved brussels sprouts made with thinly sliced brussels sprouts, tossed in lemon juice, sautéed in olive oil with garlic and mustard seeds.
- 1 pound Brussels sprouts, tough or wilted outer leaves peeled off and discarded
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 2 extra virgin olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
- 2 tablespoons dry white wine (or Vermouth)
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
- Salt and pepper to taste
1 Thinly slice the brussels sprouts and toss with lemon juice: Put the lemon juice in a large bowl. Peel off any large wilted outer leaves from the brussels sprouts and cut off the bottoms and discard.
Cut the sprouts in half lengthwise. Then thinly slice the sprouts crosswise. As you slice the sprouts, put the slices into the bowl with the lemon juice. Toss them to separate the leaves and coat with a little of the lemon juice.
2 Sauté shredded brussels sprouts with garlic and mustard seeds: Heat the oil over high heat in a large skillet. When the skillet is hot, add the brussels sprouts, garlic, mustard seeds.
Sauté them until the shaved sprouts are just lightly wilted and cooked, but still green and firm, about 3 to 4 minutes.
3 Finish with white wine, salt, pepper, lemon zest: Add the wine to the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté a minute more.
Remove from heat and sprinkle with lemon zest. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
