Pan Fried Brussels Sprouts

Pan Fried Brussels Sprouts

The Brussels Sprout is one of the most polarising vegetables - you either love them or not. This recipe is perfect as a side dish and the mixture of charred, sweet and salty flavours will make you not be able to stop at just one.



  • 1 tablespoon kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3cm piece fresh ginger, peeled, finely grated
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 500g Brussels sprouts, trimmed & halved lengthways
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 lime, halved, cut into wedges



  1. Place kecap manis, soy, honey, sesame oil, ginger and garlic in a bowl. Stir to combine.
  2. Heat a large fry pan or wok on high heat for two minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add vegetable oil.
  3. Add Brussels sprouts. Cook for 2 minutes, without stirring, or until leaves start to char.
  4. Add onion. Cook, tossing gently, for 1 minute. Add soy mixture. Toss for 30 seconds or until coated.
  5. Transfer to a serving plate. Serve with lime wedges.
