Lemon Butter Brussels Sprouts
When I made that delicious salmon with the dill sauce, I was originally going to serve it with asparagus. But this edition of Taste of Home also had a Brussels Sprouts recipe that I thought would nicely compliment the salmon.
It's a deliciously flavored side dish. It's a kicked up version of a basic Brussels Sprouts.
LEMON BUTER BRUSSELS SPROUTS (4 servings)
1 lb fresh Brussels sprouts
3 Tbsp EVOO
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp grated lemon peel
minced fresh parsley, optional
Cut Brussels sprouts in half. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add Brussels sprouts and garlic; cook and stir 5 minutes or until sprouts begin to brown.
Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Stir in broth, lemon juice, thyme, S&P. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 8-10 minutes or until sprouts are tender.
Stir in butter and lemon peel until butter is melted. If desired, sprinkle with parsley.
