Brussels sprouts are one of winter's sleeper vegetables. It's all in the cooking: undress the sprouts, peeling off the leaves one by one, and sauté them quickly with shallots and herbs to bring out their true sweet, nutty character.
Even folks who aren't fans of Brussels sprouts will like them fried. Houston's popular Eight Row Flint takes fried Brussels sprouts one step further by transforming them into vegetarian tacos, providing the inspiration for this recipe. A splatter guard is helpful when frying the sprouts.
