Use baby sprouts as they have a lovely nutty flavour and fresh Australian walnuts for their creamy texture. At the restaurant we use young Italian pecorino such as Caccio di Fossa or Pecorino Siciliano, but you can substitute with parmesan, as we’ve done here. — Danny Russo

Ingredients

  • 200 gm baby Brussels sprouts, halved lengthways, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 80 gm walnuts, crushed
  • 50 gm crumbled parmesan
