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!

Ciao!
