2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon
2-3 pounds Brussels sprouts
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons black mustard seeds
1/4 cup dry white wine or vermouth
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut bottoms of sprouts and discard. With a food processor, slice sprouts into thin slices. Toss with lemon juice in a bowl and use fingers to separate leaves.
Heat oil and butter over high heat in a large skillet. Add sprouts, garlic and mustard seeds, and cook, stirring often, until sprouts are wilted but still bright green. Add wine and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook one minute more. Stir in lemon zest and serve.
