My easy, but awesome, Southwest Roasted Brussels Sprout with Prosciutto will be a great addition to any feast. This recipe is a little more challenging than the usual easy recipe, but remember, you’re cooking a feast – You Can Do This!
1 and 1/2 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved .
2/3 cup pickled red onion (recipe below) – chopped.
1/2 cup Cotija cheese – crumbled (can substitute Parmesan)
2 oz. prosciutto – thinly chopped.
3 Tbsp. Chipotle Honey Aioli (recipe below)
2 tsp olive oil.
2 tsp minced garlic.
Chipotle Honey Ailoi: 1 pod chipotle pepper minced, 1 Tbsp of adobe sauce (sauce in the chipotle can), 1 Tbsp. honey, 2 Tbsp mayonnaise, 1 tsp fresh lemon juice. Mix together in bowl.
Pickled Red Onion:
1 red onion – sliced into thin rounds; 3/4 cup rice vinegar; 5 black peppercorns; 5 allspice berries; 3 springs of thyme; 1 clove of garlic – halved; 1 small dried red chili pepper; 1/2 tsp. sugar; 1/2 tsp. kosher salt (or sea salt). In a mason type jar place sugar, salt, vinegar, and spices (except thyme). Gently stir to mix. Add fresh thyme. Place sliced red onion in a colander resting in the sink. Bring 3 cups of water to a strong boil. Slowly pour the boiling water over the sliced onion to lightly blanch them. Drain water. Add the blanched red onion to the mason jar and stir gently.
Place lid on jar and store in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. I occasionally gently shake the jar to get all onion slices covered with the picking juice.
Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray Canola Oil on 9.5 x 13 oven baking dish. Place Brussels sprout in pan, sprinkle with garlic and olive oil, mix together. Roast for 20 minutes cut side down.
In a fry pan heated to medium high cook the prosciutto.
Remove Brussels sprout from oven, turn them over and then sprinkle with prosciutto. Return to oven for 25 minutes. With 10 minutes left on time add the the Chipotle Honey Aiole and pickled red onion and mix. Place baking dish back in oven for remainder of time.
Plate the Brussels sprouts and top with crumbled cheese.
And there you go you just made a killer vegetable side dish that everyone will want the recipe!
