2 lb. Brussels sprouts
1/4 cup olive oil

–remoulade sauce1 cup full fat mayonnaise
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon Louisiana-style hot sauce / Tobasco
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp capers, roughly chopped
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp mild, sweet paprika
1 scallion, finely chopped
1/4 tsp kosher salt
For extra spice add 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
freshly chopped Italian parsley
For the Brussels sprouts:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
Trim the root ends of the brussels sprouts and discard any loose leaves (or save them to make brussels sprouts chips).
Once water is boiling, add brussels sprouts and cook 10-20 minutes, until tender. Boiling time depends on the size of the sprouts. Drain and add to a bowl of ice water to cool, this will stop the cooking. Drain.
Using a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap, flatten the cooled brussels sprouts to 1/2 inch thickness with the back of a chefs knife or rubber kitchen mallet.
Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Toss with the olive oil. Sprinkle with the paprika.
Season with garlic salt and pepper.
Roast until crisp and deep brown around the edges, about 30-40 minutes, flipping over halfway through.
While the brussels sprouts are baking, make the Louisiana Remoulade sauce. Add all ingredients into a medium bowl and stir to combine.
Store in the refrigerator in an airtight jar. Flavors are best after sitting for at least one hour.
Top with the Remoulade sauce, freshly chopped parsley and sweet paprika.
