This is very good. I would have never tried those spices with Brussel Sprouts. I'm going to try with other veggies.

This is excellent, as is. Next time, I will clarify the butter just to see if it makes a difference. I didn't need to correct the seasoning after cooking. It was perfect. I did sprinkle a little parmesan, but that was it.
