Thai Brussels Sprouts

We love taking a classic dish and SPICING it up a bit! Brussels Spouts can be made a million different ways with a ton of flavor. This recipe is one of our favorite ways to take this vegetable to the next level. Fish sauce can scare people sometimes but I promise this Coconut Caramel Fish Sauce is going to blow your mind! The sweet flavor pairs perfectly with the roasted veggies. Give this recipe a try and tell us what you think!
