How do you cook Brussels Sprouts? Roasting is probably the most popular method, I guess. Pan-frying is also good. I like pan-fried spicy Sprouts. I would cook with Bacon or Pancetta. Today, I am sharing a Japanese recipe, that is ‘Gomamiso-ae’. ‘Gomamiso-ae’ Sauce is similar to ‘Goma-ae’ Sauce. As you can see, it has ‘Miso’ in it. The sauce is thicker and richer, and surprisingly good with Sprouts.
300 to 400g Brussels Sprouts
200g Chicken Breast Fillet
2 to 3 tablespoons Toasted Sesame Seeds *ground
1 tablespoon Miso *white type or red type
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Mirin
2 to 3 teaspoons Soy Sauce *depends on the saltiness of Miso
1 teaspoon grated Ginger
- Toast Sesame Seeds and grind until aromatic. Add Miso, Sugar, Mirin, Soy Sauce and Ginger, and mix well to make sauce.
- Tear Chicken Breast Fillet into 2 to 3 pieces so that it will cook quickly. Place Chicken in a heat-proof bowl, season lightly with Salt, cover with a plate, and cook for 1 minutes, turn over and cook for 1 more minutes (or less) until cooked. When cool enough, tear into strips.
- Clean and trim Brussels Sprouts, and cut them in half. Cook in the boiling salted water until soft. Drain and cool.
- Combine Chicken and Brussels Sprouts with the sauce.
