Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Capers, Walnuts and Anchovies



Adapted from Food & Wine

The key to Michael Symon's deeply savory side dish is a dressing that includes anchovies, capers, mustard, and a little honey.

Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds brussels sprouts, halved lengthwise or quartered
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons capers, rinsed and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • One 2-ounce tin of anchovies, drained and minced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425°. In a large bowl, toss the brussels sprouts with 1/4 cup of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread the brussels sprouts on 2 large rimmed baking sheets and roast for about 45 minutes, stirring once or twice, until tender and charred in spots. (Note: Mine were done after 20-25 minutes)

Spread the walnuts in a pie plate and toast for about 8 minutes, until golden. Let cool, then coarsely chop the nuts.

In the large bowl, whisk the vinegar with the mustard and honey. Whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup of oil until emulsified. Add the capers, garlic, shallots and anchovies; season with salt and pepper. Add the brussels sprouts and walnuts and toss well. Serve.
