Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Orange Butter Sauce

1 lb brussel sprouts
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tbsp orange juice
1/2 tsp orange zest
2 tbsp unsalted butter

Recipe Directions for Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Orange Butter Sauce

  1. Preheat the oven to 475F/245C. Line a large heavy-duty rimmed sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper.

  2. In a mixing bowl, toss the Brussel sprouts with the olive oil and 1/2 tsp of the salt. Arrange the sprouts in one layer, cut side down, on the parchment.

  3. Roast until brown and tender, 15-18 minutes. (The tops will be dark brown and crispy and the sprouts should feel tender when pierced with a paring knife.) Transfer the sprouts to a mixing bowl.

  4. Combine the balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, orange juice, and orange zest in a small saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium heat just until it's hot (you will see a bit of steam), but not simmering. Remove the pan from the heat and add the cold butter, several pieces at a time, whisking constantly until the mixture is smooth and creamy. (Don't reheat the mixture or the butter will break and the sauce won't be creamy.) Pour the sauce over the sprouts and stir thoroughly but gently until most of the sauce has been absorbed. Transfer the sprouts and any remaining sauce to a serving platter or dinner plates.
