INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 lb Brussels Sprouts
  • 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 fruit without seeds Lemons (with Peel)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium cooking pot with a tight-fitting lid, set a steamer basket over 1 1/2 water. Add Brussels sprouts, and steam over high heat until tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add salt and cook, watching carefully, until butter sizzles, browns slightly, and gives off a nutty aroma.
  3. Zest the entire lemon (about 1 tablespoon) then squeeze juice from lemon halves into the pan and add the zest.
  4. Stir in Brussels sprouts; cook, shaking pan occasionally, until warmed through.
