1

Heat the oven to 475 degrees.

2

In a large bowl, toss the Brussels sprouts with 2 tablespoons olive oil, then place them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.

3

Roast the Brussels sprouts in the oven, tossing periodically, until crisp and lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Toss the Brussels sprouts every few minutes for even coloring.

4

While the Brussels sprouts are roasting, in a large bowl, whisk together the remaining one-fourth cup olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic and red pepper flakes to form a dressing.

5

When the Brussels sprouts are roasted, remove them and toss them with the dressing. Transfer to a platter and serve hot.

Adapted from boon eat + drink. Instead of roasting the Brussels sprouts, the restaurant deep-fries them (using rice bran oil) at 350 degrees to cook and color, about 1 minute and 10 seconds.
