Hands-on Time: 30 min. | Total Time: 30 min. | Serves: 6 | Difficulty: Easy

  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • ¼ tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed, cut in half and very dry
  • Kosher salt
  • Oil for frying
  1. In a bowl whisk together honey, orange zest and cayenne pepper; set aside.
  2. Line a plate with a few layers of paper towels; set aside.
  3. Heat at least 3” of oil to 375°F in a heavy bottomed pan over medium heat. Fry Brussels sprouts in small batches, 3-4 minutes, until deeply golden brown. Drain on prepared plate; sprinkle with kosher salt.
  4. Transfer to serving dish and drizzle with honey.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers.

Frying Brussels sprouts in small batches will prevent oil temperature from dropping too much, making the sprouts greasy instead of crispy.
