Sweet chili sauce, fresh cilantro and mint will take your roasted Brussels sprouts to the next level of crave-ability!
Last month, my husband and I got to go on an all-day “adult playdate” with my cousin and her husband at the Jersey shore. We set the kids up with a sitter and headed to Cape May for the day.
On the way home, we had dinner at one of their favorite restaurants in Margate called Steve and Cookie’s. My cousin insisted that we order the Thai Chili Caramel Brussels Sprouts to share.
Now, I rarely try to recreate a restaurant dish (I know my limitations) but knew I had to take a stab at this recipe, it was THAT good. (My only regret was I didn’t get a whole order for myself.)
What I love about this recipe is that it’s really simple to make while the sweet chili sauce and herbs give it a powerful flavor punch. And of course, roasting Brussels sprouts is one of the best way to serve them – especially if you have folks who don’t think they like them—-> which was Serena and me until a few years ago!Upgrade your holiday sprouts: Thai Sweet Chili Roasted Brussels Sprouts via @tspbasil Click To Tweet
