Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Capers, Walnuts and Anchovies

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 10

The key to Michael Symon's deeply savory side dish is a dressing that includes anchovies, capers, mustard and a little honey.

  1. 3 pounds brussels sprouts, quartered
  2. 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. 1 cup walnuts
  5. 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  6. 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  7. 2 tablespoons honey
  8. 3 tablespoons capers, rinsed and chopped
  9. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  10. 2 shallots, minced
  11. One 2-ounce tin of anchovies, drained and minced
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a large bowl, toss the brussels sprouts with 1/4 cup of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread the brussels sprouts on 2 large rimmed baking sheets and roast for about 45 minutes, stirring once or twice, until tender and charred in spots; shift the pans halfway through roasting.
  2. Spread the walnuts in a pie plate and toast for about 8 minutes, until golden. Let cool, then coarsely chop the nuts.
  3. In the large bowl, whisk the vinegar with the mustard and honey. Whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup of oil until emulsified. Add the capers, garlic, shallots and anchovies; season with salt and pepper. Add the brussels sprouts and walnuts and toss well. Serve.
Make Ahead The brussels sprouts and dressing can be made up to 4 hours ahead and kept at room temperature. Rewarm the brussels sprouts before serving.
