California Fish Grill Brussel Sprouts Recipe

When I and my friends went to California Fish Grill last month, one of my friends ordered their grilled brussels sprouts. At first, I was a little taken aback, wondering what was so special about this dish. Brussels sprouts are a very versatile vegetable and you can prepare amazing dishes.

You may have guessed by now that I am not at all a vegan, but when I tasted it, I was completely taken aback by the smokey and tangy flavor, which left me speechless.

Following several failed attempts, I finally perfected the authentic California fish grill brussel sprouts recipe, which I will share with you below. I also tried the roasted brussel sprouts recipe, which is also provided below. I couldn’t help but call the chef, and she was so helpful and told me what’s the magic inside of it.
