spicy smoked paprika
Serves 4 as a side
-1 lb. Brussels sprouts, stem & dirty outer leaves removed, quartered if large and well dried
-1½ T. olive oil
-¾ t. sea or kosher salt
-¼ t. ground black pepper, or more to taste
-1 T. fresh squeezed lemon juice
-½ t smoked (Spanish) paprika
Preheat oven to 425 degrees°.
On a shallow rimmed baking sheet, toss sprouts with olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper, coating as much surface area of the vegetables as possible.
Roast in bottom third of oven for 5 minutes.
Stir sprouts to expose unbrowned areas to the hot pan, then roast another 5 minutes, or until surface is mostly caramelized.
Immediately toss with lemon juice on the sheet pan, and then stir in smoked paprika.
Sprinkle with a little more salt, to taste. Serve after cooling slightly. Enjoy!
