    Made this over the weekend - make sure your oil is hot enough otherwise the Brussels Sprouts get soggy - took me two times to get right, but was worth it! Fantastic!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!

                I've noticed at SPQR that you can basically replace the brussels sprouts with any big leafy vegetable like artichoke, cauliflower, etc. Give it a try.
