Nedd Ludd is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland. I have had this dish there and really enjoyed it. The Oregonian featured this recipe and after making it I felt this was just as good as ordering it there! I love brussel sprouts and the charred lemon flavor is really nice and refreshing!
1 lb of brussels sprouts
1 T olive oil
pinch of coarse sea salt
1/2 tsp red chile flakes (this has a lot of kick, use 1/4 tsp if you are not into that)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Preheat broiler to high. Place a cast iron skillet on the middle rack of the oven to preheat.
Cut sprouts in half and discard outer leaves. In a large bowl, toss sprouts with olive oil, salt and chile flakes. When the skillet begins smoking add the sprouts and broil stirring once or twice until charred but soft and not burnt...about 10 minutes.
Toss the sprouts with lemon juice and more oil and salt if desired.
