This is a great way to serve Brussels Sprouts. Even us non-sprout-likers will rave about this one! It's quick and easy to prepare, and you can halve all ingredients without problems.

Halved the recipe, got started & discovered - No lemon! Lots of oranges though. I peeled & chopped 2 navel oranges & threw them in with 1 T orange zest after sauteing shallots & walnuts. Forgot the garlic, my bad (just noticed that LOL). Seasoned with kosher salt & fresh ground pepper. Though admittedly a divergence from your recipe, it was wolfed at the table! The walnuts were fantastic! Necessity is the mother of invention. I will make your recipe again, next time properly with the garlic & lemon! Thank you, rica, for yet another great way to eat brussels sprouts!
