What You Will Need:

  • 1 lbs Brussels Sprouts
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Capers, drained
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes
  • Salt to Taste

Method: Bring up the temperature on your deep fryer to 375 degrees. Wash sprouts and remove any dead or browning leaves. Quarter large sprouts and halve smaller sprouts. Ensure the Brussels Sprouts are completely dry before putting them into the deep fryer. Place Brussels Sprouts into deep fryer and cook for 1 minute or until golden brown. Remove the sprouts from the deep fryer and shake to remove all excess oil. Place into a small bowl, adding capers, lemon juice, grated Parmesan, chilli flakes and salt. Toss together, plate and serve immediately. (Serves 4)
