Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

I like to serve these sprouts with my salmon dishes. I always get asked for the recipe. Here is it.

  • 6 slices of thick cut Bacon
  • 2 pounds fresh Brussels Sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/3 cup of Water

Cook bacon until well cooked and crumbly. Drain bacon drippings. Over medium-high heat, heat EVOO in a large saute pan. Add remaining ingredients expect the water to the pan and saute brussels sprouts until well brown and caramelized about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the water to the pan and cook until evaporated about 3 minutes.  Toss the bacon crumbles and the brussels sprouts together and serve warm.
