Serves 6

1 lb. fresh brussel sprouts – trim ends, remove outer damaged leaves, cut in half and steam till tender but still bright green

extra virgin olive oil

smoked paprika

garlic powder

fresh grind sea salt

fresh grind black pepper

1/3 c. Ball Park Mustard

Heat large skillet over medium heat. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil into skillet, roll the skillet to coat bottom, then place each brussel sprout half, cut-side down onto skillet. Cook till charred, then flip spouts.

Sprinkle with smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Toss to coat, cook a couple more minutes then remove from skillet.
