  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • Peanut Oil for frying
  • Sherry
  • sea salt
  • capers


  • Trim the stem off washed Brussels Sprouts and cut them in half.
  • Heat peanut oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees – grapeseed and cottonseed oils also have a high smoke point (olive oil won’t work).
  • Fry them for 2-4 minutes or until golden brown – before they get mushy inside. This all depends on the size – watch for the edges to get golden and crispy-looking, while the bulb is still green.
  • Remove them onto paper towels to dry up some of the grease and toss them with Sherry vinegar and kosher salt, then finish them with a handful of capers.
