Not So Good

Sonia here.  This year our family found out that we actually like brussels sprouts when you pan fry them up in butter, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese.  When I found this recipe, I thought it might be good to try as well.  Yeah, not so much.  I'm not sure if it was the different tastes (sweet, sour, spicy, green, etc.) all mixed together, or what, but  none of us liked it.  Oh well.  At least we tried. :)

Brussels Sprouts with Sriracha, Lime, Honey Glaze

3 cups brussels sprouts
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1-1/2 tablespoons honey
1/2-1 teaspoon sriracha  (I didn't have this, but used tabasco instead)
The juice of half a lime

Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

Trim the woody ends off the brussels sprouts and then slice them in half lengthwise. On a baking sheet, toss the brussels sprouts with the peanut oil and season lightly with salt. Place in the oven and roast for 10 minutes. Toss the sprouts and roast for 10 minutes more.

Meanwhile, whisk together the honey, sriracha and lime juice until combined. After the brussels sprouts have roasted for 20 minutes, pour the glaze over them, toss to combine, and roast for 2 minutes more. Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately.
