  • Clean the brussel sprouts by trimming off the ends and peeling the outer layer of the sprout off. Cut each one in half.
  • Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Once heated, add the halved brussel sprouts to the pan and saute for about 7-8 minutes on each side until the outer part is a caramelized brown and the inside is soft and fully cooked.
  • Add the garlic half way through the cooking.
  • Reduce the heat to low and add the lemon zest, juice, salt and pepper.
  • Stir to combine and taste. Adjust seasoning if needed. Add the cheese on top and serve.
