Directions

Prep for Brussels sprouts skewers
Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, toss in the brussels sprouts for 1 minute until tender. Remove them, rinse under cold water and pat dry with a towel.

Step 2

Place the brussels sprouts in a bowl with red onion and the rest of the ingredients, toss so the veggies are well coated in the marinade.

Step 3

Arrange the sprouts onto the skewers with red onion in between them – there should be about 4 brussels sprouts per skewer. If using wooden skewers, soak them first. 

Step 4

Pour any remaining marinade left in the bowl over the skewers.

Step 5

Place the skewers onto your BBQ or grill that’s set to medium heat. Cover and grill for about 5 minutes per side, until a nice browning forms.

Step 6

Brush with a little extra maple syrup, a squeeze of lemon juice, fresh parsley and enjoy.
