Pan-fried Brussel sprouts with lemon shoyu

April 25, 2020

My favorite Brussel sprouts recipe with shoyu and lemon.  
Shoyu is soy sauce in Japanese.  If you are gluten-free, please use tamari shoyu.



If I had yuzu  or sudachi citrus, I would use it instead of lemon.

Or you can purchase organic yuzu juice from here. You can make yuzunade mix yuzu juice with honey or your favorite sweetener and sparkling water. It is so tasty!
