Brussels sprouts are very much like Marmite, love them or hate them they are a tradition on the Christmas dinner table. Whilst they are not everyone’s favourite but this method of parboiling, sautéing and then drizzling with lemon juice will have you reaching for a second helping of Brussels sprouts. It’s a great vegetable side dish ready in minutes and will be a great accompaniment to your Christmas dinner. The lemon gives the whole recipe a bit of edge and although this is a very simple recipe, that little squeeze of lemon at the end really transforms it.


  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 450g brussels sprouts
  • 2 large pinches of coarse sea salt
  • 1 lemon, juice only

For extra decadence sprinkle with some freshly grated parmesan cheese.


  1. Trim the spouts if they are still on the stalk and cut each in half.
  2. Steam over a pan of boiling water for 6 minutes and remove from the heat.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan on a medium-high heat and add the brussels sprouts ensuring they are in an even layer across the pan.
  4. Allow to fry on one side for 3-4 minutes before turning them over. Fry for a further 3 minutes until they are just turning crispy.
  5. Remove from the pan, sprinkle with salt and a squeeze of lemon juice. Serve immediately.
