Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Lemon Aioli is a flavor combination that you will absolutely love!
The inspiration for this recipe comes from Brew Fish Bar & Eatery in Marion, Massachusetts. Jack and I ate there for the very first time last weekend, after our daughter’s swim meet. Several swim parents we were talking to at the meet raved about this restaurant – so we made an impromptu visit for dinner.
Brew Fish lists an Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Lemon Aioli on the appetizer menu. After the very first, very delicious bite – Jack and I looked at each other with wide eyes and said in unison, “We have to make this for the blog!”
Who knew that the bright lemon flavors in a creamy aioli would be such a perfect complement to the flavor of the oven roasted Brussels sprouts!?! Aioli is traditionally a Mediterranean sauce made with garlic and olive oil – similar in taste and consistency to a mayonnaise. (To keep things simple, we created today’s lemon aioli using jarred mayonnaise as the base – but if you would prefer homemade, click here for our homemade mayonnaise recipe, or here for our roasted garlic aioli recipe and then add the lemon zest and juice as well as the other seasonings.)
Once the Brussels sprouts have roasted in the oven, simply toss the sprouts lightly with some of the lemon aioli before serving. Then add another dollop of the aioli alongside the sprouts on your plate.
