Decorate the Plate...

with Jamie Oliver's take on cooking brussel sprouts. Above is my version of Stir-Fried Brussel Sprouts with Lemon and Parmesan. Amazing!


50g streaky bacon or pancetta diced
1 tbsp of olive oil
3 cups approx. of brussel sprouts (roughly chopped)
1 lemon
salt and pepper (as desired)
2 tbsp of grated parmesan
1 knob butter

In frying pan and over a medium heat, warm olive oil and add the bacon. Stir until bacon begins to crisp. Add sprouts and cook until they begin to wilt but are still crisp - they will go very green - 8-10 mins. Squeeze the juice of the lemon into the pan (keeping the zest) and add salt and pepper. Remove from heat and toss with butter, lemon zest and parmesan cheese.

Please let me know what you think of this recipe. My family love it.
