Pan roasted Brussels sprouts and almonds

Serves 4

  • Canola oil
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1dozen Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2tablespoons capers
  • 2tablespoons caper juice
  • 1/4cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • Pepper, to taste
  1. Coat the bottom of a 10-inch stainless steel pan with a thin layer of olive oil. Add a pinch of red pepper flakes, and heat the oil over medium-high heat until hot.
  2. Place the Brussels sprouts cut-side down in a single layer in the pan and season with a small pinch of salt. Let the sprouts cook without moving until the bottoms are dark brown, 3 minutes.
  3. Add the shallots to the pan and toss the Brussels sprouts. Let cook until the sprouts brown further on different sides, 3 to 5 more minutes.
  4. Add the capers and caper juice to the pan, scraping the bottom to deglaze any browned bits. Cook for another 3-5 minutes (taste to check for done-ness), until the sprouts are cooked through.
  5. Toss in the slivered almonds and cook until warmed, 1-2 minutes.
  6. Season with pepper and additional salt (if desired). Serve warm.
