This dish is inspired by a favourite from Momofuku Ssäm Bar in New York. Asian flavours work really well with sprouts, and roasting them until they are deep golden brings out their incredible nutty flavour.

  • 10 gm (1 tsp) butter
  • 350 gm Brussels sprouts (about 16), trimmed, outer leaves discarded
  • For shallow-trying: olive oil
