  • 1 tbsp mirin or Sherry
  • pinch of sugar
  • 500g Brussels sprout , roughly chopped
  • 1 red chilli , shredded (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Toast the sesame seeds and, while they are still hot, use a pestle and mortar to grind all but ½ tbsp until almost powder-like. Mix the soy and mirin into the crushed seeds, along with the sugar and 2 tsp water.

  • STEP 2

    Heat a large wok, then stir-fry the sprouts with a splash of water until softened but still crunchy. Stir through the sesame paste, then scatter with the remaining sesame seeds and the chilli, if using.
