Recipes & Nutrition: Deep Fried Brussel Sprouts

Deep-fried Brussels sprouts are a popular side dish at Ssäm Bar. I cook them in a hot oven on a cast iron skillet. That way they still get that nutty sweetness and nicely browned crisp exterior. 

Rice Krispies, standing in for Indian puffed rice (which is more difficult to find), add crunch, while sous-chef Tien Ho's Vietnamese-style dressing lends the sprouts an offbeat complexity.
