Grilled Brussels Sprouts Recipe:
Barbecue and Grilling
Yields: 4 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
1 pound Brussels sprouts, as uniform in size as possible
1 tablespoon minced
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon kosher or sea
1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black
* In order to facilitate
even cooking, it is important that the Brussels sprouts be as uniform in
size and shape as possible.
Preheat your Barbecue grill to medium.
Cut off the stem end of the Brussels sprouts and remove any yellowing outer leaves.
Place the Brussels sprouts into a large, microwave-safe bowl and heat in the
microwave on high for 3 minutes. Remove from the microwave and add the olive
oil, garlic, mustard, smoked paprika, and salt; toss to combine. Allow the
sprouts to cool until you can easily handle them.
Skewer 4 to 5 Brussels sprouts onto each metal skewer with the stem ends facing in
the same direction, leaving at least 1/2-inch in between each sprout. Place
the skewers onto the prepared grill with stem end closest to the flame.
Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Turn the skewers over and continue to cook for
another 5 minutes. Remove from grill.
Serve as is or for additional flavor, remove the sprouts from the skewers, return
them to the original mixing bowl and toss with any of the remaining oil and
garlic mixture before serving.
