Ingredients

  • 1  Pound  Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • fennel bulb, thinly shaved with a mandolin
  • slices Serrano ham, rolled and sliced into ribbons
  • 2  Tablespoons  extra virgin olive oil
  • ½  Tablespoon  balsamic vinegar
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions

Prepare your grill for medium-high heat cooking, approximately 425 degrees. Place a vegetable grilling basket on the grill to pre-heat.

In a medium mixing bowl, toss the Brussels sprouts with 1½ tablespoons of the olive oil and the balsamic vinegar. In a small bowl, toss the sliced fennel with remaining olive oil.

Place the Brussels sprouts in the vegetable basket and allow them to cook for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until tender and lightly charred. Add the fennel and Serrano ham slices, and cook for another 3-5 minutes until the fennel has softened and the ham begins to crisp.

Remove the mixture from the grill, add salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.

Brussels Sprouts Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Brussels Sprouts Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook different types separately and then combine.
