Easy, tasty grilled Brussels sprouts recipe.  Quickly marinated, Mediterranean-style, then perfectly charred, and finished with a sprinkle of Parmesan.  A healthy, gluten free appetizer or side dish.


  • 1 lb burssels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 3 tbsp Private Reserve Greek extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice, more for later
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • pinch crushed red pepper, to your liking
  • grated Parmesan cheese, to your liking


  1. Soak about 10 small wooden skewers in water for 30 mins or so.
  2. Place brussels sprouts in a mixing bow and heat in microwave for 2 mins. Let cool enough before handling.
  3. To the brussels sprouts add olive oil, lemon juice, and minced garlic. Season with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and pinch crushed red pepper flakes. Toss to combine.
  4. Now thread 3 to 4 brussels sprouts halves on each skewer (keep the stems facing the same direction).
  5. Heat indoor grill or griddle like this one over medium-high heat (or an outdoor grill over medium heat). Arrange skewers in one layer on heated grill. Cover and cook for 4 mins on one side (or until nicely charred), then, using a pair of tongs, turn skewers over and cook on the other side another 3 to 4 mins or so (covered).
  6. Transfer grilled brussels sprouts skewers to a serving platter. Squeeze a little bit more fresh lemon juice and sprinkle Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!


  • Cooking note 1: It's best if you use brussels sprouts that are close in shape and size so that you get even cooking.
  • Cooking note 2: If you have some of the marinade (EVOO, lemon juice, garlic etc.) left in the mixing bowl
