These crispy, roasted Spicy Asian Brussels Sprouts are sweet, spicy, savory, and so good for you! Even Brussels-deniers will love this side dish!


  • 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

For the Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (red chili paste)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Pinch black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash Brussels sprouts and thoroughly dry on a towel or paper towel. Cut Brussels sprouts in half making sure to remove the thick bottom first. Spread out on a large baking sheet and drizzle with oil.
  2. Thoroughly coat the Brussels with oil so it’s evenly distributed. Bake in oven for 30 minutes. Toss the Brussels halfway through to make sure both sides are cooked and browned.
  3. To make the sauce: Place all other ingredients in a small saucepan. During last 10 minutes of cooking Brussels sprouts, sauté sauce over medium heat to reduce and thicken.
  4. Remove Brussels sprouts from oven when slightly charred and cooked through. Place in a large bowl and toss with sauce. Serve immediately.


  • Cut off the thick end of the Brussels sprouts before roasting. They don’t taste good and are too tough!
  • Make sure to dry the Brussels thoroughly before tossing with the oil. This will allow them to get crispy and golden when roasting.
  • Toss the Brussels with the sauce as soon as it comes out of the oven. Serve immediately.
