BBQ Brussels Sprouts with Whole Grain Mustard
This has a very basic mustard sauce, and could easily be adapted. A touch of honey would be lovely with it, or perhaps some crushed garlic.

Ingredients
  • 500g Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • also needed are bamboo skewers
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Blanch the sprouts (i.e. cook them in the boiling water) for 3-4 minutes. Remove sprouts from the boiling water and rinse with cold water (or plunge into an ice bath).
  2. Remove sprouts from cold water and pat dry. Trim the bottom stems of the sprouts, and remove the outer leaves. Mix together the mustard, olive oil, salt, and pepper. In a small bowl, toss the Brussels Sprouts in the mustard sauce. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
  3. Once sprouts have marinated, prepare them for barbecuing. Skewer sprouts, placing 3-4 sprouts on each skewer. (Note: Since the sprouts aren’t cooked all the way through yet, they are a bit tough to skewer. You can also place the sprouts directly on the BBQ without a skewer, if they are large enough to not slip through the grate.)
  4. When the barbecue is nice and hot, place the skewered sprouts on the grill. BBQ for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until the sprouts are nicely charred on all sides. When ready, remove the sprouts from the grill and toss with a bit more mustard sauce.
