Ingredients

  • 1 x 100g pack blanched hazelnuts
  • 1kg Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved if large
  • 100g salted butter
  • 2 echalion shallots, peeled and finely chopped
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • zest of 1 small orange
  • 2 tsp clear honey

Step by step

Get ahead
Prepare up to the end of step 2 the day before. Transfer to a bowl of iced water until cold. Cover and chill, in the water.
  1. Put the hazelnuts in a frying pan; stir over a medium heat until tinged with gold. Leave to cool; then chop roughly, leaving some halved. Transfer to an airtight container.
  2. Add the sprouts to a large pan of boiling salted water, return to the boil and cook for about 6 minutes until bright green and just tender. Drain well; refresh under a cold running tap.
  3. Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Leave it to cook until the bubbling sound subsides and it turns a nutty brown (but don't let it burn). Add the shallots and lemon juice; stir for a minute more. Stir in the hazelnuts; put aside.
  4. Drain the sprouts very well. Add to the pan with the butter and nuts, add most of the orange zest and the honey, and stir over the heat for 4-6 minutes or until everything is well combined and heated through. Season to taste. Sprinkle with the reserved orange zest just before serving.
