Donal's Sesame Brussels Sprouts


Equipment: 2 Non-stick sauté pan
Serves: 4

  • 130g Brussels Sprouts
  • 4 spring onions 
  • 1 Thai red chilli
  • 25g butter
  • 1 tablespoon reduced salt soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
  • Salt & Pepper to season


  1. Get a pan on a medium heat and add in the olive oil
  2. Slice the brussels sprouts in half and place them flat side down into the pan for 3-4 minutes. You're looking for them to go golden so don't be tempted to turn them! Season with sea salt and black pepper.
  3. Slice the spring onions on the diagonal and add to the pan around the sprouts.
  4. Cut the butter into slices and add to the pan around the sprouts and spring onions.
  5. Slice up your red chilli and scatter into the pan, adding the seeds if you’re feeling brave!
  6. Add the soy sauce and sesame oil and give it all a good toss. Add in your water to ensure they cook through for about 3-4 minutes. This will also create a sauce for your spouts.
  7. In a separate pan, toast your sesame seeds in a dry pan over medium heat for 2 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
  8. Serve on a plate and scatter over the browned sesame seeds.
