Ingredients

6 Brussels sprouts 150 g
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil 23 mL
14 shrimp, medium-large 140 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1/2 red onions, finely chopped 80 g
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 lemon

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Leave the Brussel sprouts whole or cut them in half if large, then blanch them in a pot of salted boiling water until crisp-tender (al dente), about 4 min. Remove the sprouts from the pot using a slotted spoon. Drain well then set aside.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp then sauté, with stirring until the shrimp are opaque throughout and pink-coloured, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper, then take the shrimp out of the pan, and set them aside, covered to keep them warm.
  3. Lower the heat to 'medium', add the remaining oil, then sauté the oignon, until softened, 2-3 min, with stirring. Add the sprouts and sauté until golden and crisp-tender, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper. Put the shrimp back into the pan, sprinkle with the lemon juice and stir. Heat throughout (1-2 min).
  4. Serve on the warmed plates.
