  • grapeseed oil for frying
  • 1 cup mint, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper

  1. Trim the ends off of the Brussels sprouts and remove and reserve the outer leaves. Wash the whole Brussels sprouts thoroughly in cold water. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat about 3 inches of oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. When the oil begins to smoke, carefully add the sprouts and cook them for about 4 minutes, or until crispy.
  3. Remove with a slotted spoon. Place in a bowl.
  4. Add the mint leaves, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and lemon juice to the bowl. Toss to coat evenly and serve immediately.
