“A sweet yet mildly spicy Caribbean rendition of an old vegetable staple makes what sometimes is a bitter-tasting veggie, liked by few, into an exciting side dish.

To quote both my girlfriend and roommate, both of whom assured me they hated brussel sprouts, "Oh my god, these are the best brussel sprouts I have ever eaten.""

This recipe could help to change th..." See moreat! I soaked the sprouts in salt water for 1 hour prior to cooking. For the jerk seasoning, I used a recipe from this website. I also followed the advice of another reviewer and added a little water near the end of the cooking time and then covered the pan for a bit in order to steam them and make sure they were fully cooked and tender."
