did you grow up eating brussel sprouts? did you hate them? maybe because i grew up in an asian household we never had to eat brussel sprouts my dad always tried to make us eat biter melon, which i absolutely hated. so i can imagine it was a similar feeling towards brussel sprouts for other kids growing up. i can't recall the first time i had brussel sprouts but i've always loved them and simmzy's in long beach serves up on of my favorite roasted brussel sprouts ever. it's roasted crispy brussel sprouts topped with a lemony sauce – it's simply divine. i've tried countless times to recreate it at home although i don't think it's exactly the same i think it's a pretty darn close home version. let me know what you think!
