  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • ¼ tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed, cut in half and very dry
  • Kosher salt
  • Oil for frying
Directions:
  1. In a bowl whisk together honey, orange zest and cayenne pepper; set aside.
  2. Line a plate with a few layers of paper towels; set aside.

Tip:

Frying Brussels sprouts in small batches will prevent oil temperature from dropping too much, making the sprouts greasy instead of crispy.
