Charlie's Sweet Island Brussels Sprouts
Reviews:
March 28, 2011

5 stars with my adaptation as follows: first I soaked the sprouts in salted water for close to an hour, then drained the water and tossed them with olive oil, salt, pepper, and some cumin (roughly a tsp worth each of the seasonings). Then I sliced the sprouts lengthwise and baked sliced side down in the oven at 475 degrees for 15 minutes. They will get a nice little char on them, just watch carefully to ensure they don't burn. While the sprouts cooked, I added the butter and seasonings from the recipe (all quantities the same) to a small sauce pan. Then I added about 8 tbsp's of coconut milk and reduced the sauce slightly. Once the sprouts were cooked, I placed them in a large bowl and tossed with the sauce. To quote both my girlfriend and roommate, both of whom assured me they hated brussel sprouts, "Oh my god, these are the best brussel sprouts I have ever eaten."
