Update: Click here for more fabulous Brussels Sprouts Recipes.

It feels so great to be cranking up the oven lately with all the incoming cool weather. Southern California weather is been so kooky strange and each week is like a yo-yo of surprise weather conditions. Fortunately, this week has been significantly cooler and thus, more oven comfort of dishes for the table.

When Margaret outlined this week as brassica week, we knew immediately that we’d be making roasted brussels sprouts to warm up the kitchen and our bellies. We’re lovers of these mini-cabbage looking beasts and have made almost every variation possible. And we never get tired of eating brussels sprouts in any form.

Spicy sriracha and mint dressing with a tangy kick

So with cool weather and a hankering for something really flavorful and spicy, we created a spicy sriracha brussels sprouts. In our opinion, this is our favorite brussels sprouts recipe that we’ve made to date.

With a touch of sriracha hot sauce or any chili sauce, this marinade we made for the roasted brussels sprouts has so much depth of flavor and pop, you’ll be licking the bowl clean. All the Asian flavors of robust fish sauce, bright lime, fragrant mint and kick of spice make a wonderful dressing to the roasted brussels sprouts.

If you love spice and Asian flavors, you will love this spicy brussels sprouts recipe!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Sriracha and Mint

Yield: Serves 4-6 as a side dish

Total Time: 15 minutes

This is very easy.  Roast the brussels sprouts then toss with the sriracha and mint dressing and serve.  Adapted from David Chang's Spicy Brussels Sprouts with Mint.  If you are adventurous, try making a homemade sriracha style sauce to use in this recipe.


  • 2 lbs (910g) Brussels Sprouts, loose leaves removed and cut in half lengthwise
  • 3-4 tablespoons (45-60ml)Grape Seed or other cooking oil

    Sriracha Dressing

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) Water
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) Fish Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) Sriracha Sauce, or to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon of crushed Garlic
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 teaspoons (5g) packed Golden Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) Rice Vinegar
  • 1/4 c finely cut Mint Leaves


    Preheat oven to roast at 375°F.

  1. Spread brussels sprouts out on a sheet pan, toss with grape seed oil, then lay brussels sprouts face down. Roast in oven for 15 min., flip the sprouts to cut side up, then roast for about 10-15 more minutes or until gently browned.
  2. While brussels sprouts are roasting, make dressing. Combine dressing ingredients in a bowl and mix to completely combine. Set aside.
  3. After brussels sprouts have finished roasting, toss with dressing, then serve.

I love Sriracha on everything! This is a definite must-try. Gorgeous shots.

These sprouts are looking great. The sriracha sauce is a great idea & one I must try. I usually just roast them & toss with some parm. Thank goodness for this cooler weather. Makes me a much happier gal :)

Awesome what is said Sriracha sauce and is there something I could use as a substitute? The tiny island that I am calling my temporary home may or may not have it.


4 White on Rice Couple November 9, 2010 at 8:58 pm

Use any hot sauce you might like. Sriracha just has it’s dear place in our household.


5 megan November 10, 2010 at 12:29 pm

I found it!!! I love hot sauces so I could have substituted it with any number of them, now to find brussels sprouts – I guess today is not a delivery day to the island.


6 Nick (Macheesmo) November 9, 2010 at 8:29 pm

Brussel sprouts are so under-rated. Roasting them is the perfect way to bring out their flavor.

The Sriracha sauce is really interesting. Never seen that paired with the sprouts before!

Oh… and that first photo is amazing.


7 Yue Edwards November 9, 2010 at 8:45 pm

wow, beautiful pictures!!! this spicy sauce sounds so good!!


8 Karen at Globetrotter Diaries November 9, 2010 at 10:01 pm

Yum! Interesting combo– I’ve never tried that before, but it looks delicious. I LOVE brussel sprouts, so will have to try it out. Thanks!


9 Jessica @ How Sweet November 10, 2010 at 3:51 am

I have an obsession with brussels right now, but never tried them with a flavor combo like this. Sounds delicious.


10 TheKitchenWitch November 10, 2010 at 5:25 am

Brussel sprouts usually turn my intestines into Chernobyl, but I honestly think this recipe might be worth the collateral damage. There are so many good flavors going on in this recipe. Anything with Sriracha in it has great potential, in my book.


11 Ranjani November 10, 2010 at 5:51 am

These look great! I love brussels sprouts but have never tried them with these flavor combinations.
This week I made brussels sprouts with bacon dressing:

I also made pasta with cauliflower and walnut pesto:


12 Kathleen in St. Louis November 10, 2010 at 6:12 am

I saw brussel sprouts on display like this on display at Trader Joe’s and I wanted them just cuz they looked so cool! Can’t wait to try them prepared this way.

Wish I could get brussels sprouts like that here. Looks wonderful. I have a couple recipes for brassicas this week for #fallfest.

16 Beth November 10, 2010 at 7:38 am

I’ve been searching for a brussels sprouts recipe that my husband might actually like, and this may be it!! Very cool shot too- I would love that to hang on my kitchen wall!


17 Cookin' Canuck November 10, 2010 at 8:16 am

Now this is the way to make people appreciate Brussels sprouts. Love the herbal-spicy sauce and love that first shot even more.


18 Sues November 10, 2010 at 8:35 am

Wow! I’ve been seeing brussels sprouts recipes everywhere lately, but this is definitely one of the greatest. And I’m pretty sure I could convince many a non-brussels sprout fan to indulge in these. Thanks for the delicious idea!


19 The Sriracha Cookbook November 10, 2010 at 8:51 am

Ever since I heard about Sriracha and Brussels Sprouts at Joseph Leonard in New York, I’ve been hooked on the flavor combination. This looks like fantastic! I can’t wait to try it!


20 Feast on the Cheap November 10, 2010 at 9:26 am

Mmm, such an interesting spin on sprouts!

In honor of Fall Fest we whipped up Roasted Brussels Sprouts w/Crispy Pancetta and Garlic


21 Brooke@foodwoolf November 10, 2010 at 10:14 am

Guess who’s borrowing this recipe for Thanksgiving…THIS girl. Holy crap that is such a great idea! I’m so excited to try this recipe out! xoxoxoxoxo Thanks for the inspiration!

23 norma November 10, 2010 at 11:05 am

One of my favorite veggies and this version looks good to me. I so enjoy your posts.


24 Ngoc November 10, 2010 at 2:44 pm

My Fall Fest contribution was broccoli:


25 Radhika @ foodfor7stages November 10, 2010 at 3:18 pm

Brussel sprouts with Siracha sounds like my kind of dish and your pictures inspire me every time I stop by your blog.

I’m ashamed to admit it, but this past weekend was the first time I’ve seen brussel sprouts on the stalk. This might be one of my holiday side dishes. Thanks.


27 Wendy November 10, 2010 at 4:41 pm

Oh, I love roasted vegetables, both in the oven and in the pan. I’m excited to start out the oven roasting season with a new flavor!

I’ve got a recipe for Mexican pan roasted Cabbage (bonus- there’s the variation to do Indian roasted cauliflower, my all time favorite).


28 Charles G Thompson November 10, 2010 at 4:52 pm

Great idea to combine Sriracha, mint and Brussels sprouts! Going to give this a try. Thanks!


29 Lana November 11, 2010 at 12:47 am

Since I discovered Brussels sprouts when i moved to the U.S., I prepared them with bacon, red wine, balsamic vinaigrette, roasted, caramelized, steamed… But never with Sri-racha and mint. And I have both.
Yes, the weather in Southern California has been acting very weird, but it suits me well – I can indulge in some winter fare (in a couple of days I am getting ready to start on making sauerkraut, right on my Mission Viejo patio:)
I made German-inspired braised red cabbage.


30 Mei Teng November 11, 2010 at 5:44 am

Lovely brussel sprouts! :)


31 Nuts about Food November 11, 2010 at 6:43 am

My recipe is for a great root vegetable: celeriac or celery root. I am not sure if the timing for this vegetable is still right. It seems that brussel sprouts seem to be the veg of the week! Anyhow, I hope it still is the right week, because this soup is very and tastes wonderful.


32 Vanessa November 11, 2010 at 3:24 pm

I love brussel sprouts and I love the idea of adding mint and siracha! Will definitely make this soon!


33 Kate @ Savour Fare November 11, 2010 at 5:01 pm

I love Brussels sprouts and can’t wait to try this recipe. In the meantime, I added some sauteed sprouts with sriracha to fried rice.


34 Jeanette November 11, 2010 at 7:49 pm

Stunning pictures! I love roasted brussel sprouts and your recipe sounds amazing. I just made soy glazed roasted shredded brussel sprouts tonight. Will definitely try your recipe.


35 Peggy November 12, 2010 at 6:49 am

I’ve never tried Sriracha on Brussels Sprouts, but that’s definitely going to change very soon! It sounds like a perfect match!


36 napa farmhouse 1885/diane November 12, 2010 at 9:16 am

i posted my recipe for roasted cauliflower & garlic…both roasted long enough to caramalize…so delicious and children adore cauliflower this way…


37 Brent & Lisa November 14, 2010 at 8:30 pm

Thanks for sharing this! We’re anxious to give this a try. Our latest foray with brussel sprouts have been on the grill. Oh, and if you like cool weather, stop by the Twin Cities, we just got one month of snow in two days! :)


38 T November 15, 2010 at 10:43 am

Wow, thanks for that recipe. It actually came out much better than anticipated – though I have to admit I never even tried roasting sprouts before. For the sauce I used Sambal Oelek, Isaan Sauce as a heavy fish sauce and fresh cilantro goes great with it, too :)

A great addition to my list of party foods (quick, spicy, cheap and sth to talk about)! ;)


39 Beverly November 17, 2010 at 6:20 am

This sounds amazing! What a combination of flavors! Thank you for all of your fun recipe ideas.


40 Kristen November 23, 2010 at 6:04 pm

I made this for dinner tonight (though I subbed red wine vinegar and a few tablespoons or two of cilantro since we had no mint on hand) and my husband could not stop exclaiming how great this side dish was! I tried to get his opinion on the chicken I made but he was having none of it. thank you, though, for this deliciously tasteful recipe! we love sriracha here :)


41 Lucy December 3, 2010 at 9:34 pm

I’ve always heard so much about Brussel sprouts but have never eaten it. This was the first time I tried them, and it’s delicious!


42 Laura May 17, 2011 at 3:05 pm

love this website, love sprouts! and this is a great recipe, although i had to improvise on the ingredients a little. its great with cilantro too!


43 meghan July 27, 2012 at 7:26 am

I just found your blog through a pin on pinterest. I am so glad I did! Your food pictures are gorgeous, and definately give me inspiration! I’ve been trying to work on my food photography-staging etc.. instead of just snapping a photo quickly so that I can enjoy the delicous meal I made! Thank you for your inspiration. I look forward to reading more!


44 Julie Winchester February 20, 2014 at 7:34 pm

This is my favorite way of making brussels sprouts. I think I had something similar to this at a Jean-Georges restaurant and I loved it. My boyfriend found your wonderful website and this awesome recipe, and now he makes these sprouts all the time.
