Are Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts really spicy?
If you can tolerate a mild heat, you'll probably enjoy this dish. The honey in the sauce helps to mellow out the spice level of the Sriracha sauce.
The sauce is made separately so you can taste it and adjust it to your preference, adding more honey for a sweeter sauce or more Sriracha sauce for something spicier.
See the recipe card for exact amounts.
To make these Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts you'll roast the sprouts while you make the sauce and them combine everything together.
Start by cutting the larger sprouts in half and leaving the small ones whole. Set aside the loose outer leaves for later.
Place the sprouts on a baking sheet, cut side down. Season with oil, salt, and pepper, and bake for 20 minutes.
Combine the sauce ingredients in a small skillet over medium heat.
Bring to a boil and lower to a simmer for 5 minutes. This will thicken the sauce.
Add the remaining oil to the set aside leaves. Add them to the baking sheet and return to the oven for 5 minutes.
The sprouts will be roasted and caramelized.
Add the sprouts to the skillet of sauce.
Toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Tips for making honey sriracha roasted Brussels sprouts
What to serve with honey sriracha glazed Brussels sprouts
Need a main dish to serve this sweet and spicy Brussels sprouts recipe with? Try it with Creamy Hummus pasta, Spicy Mac and Cheese, Chicken and Chorizo Pasta, or on the side of my Spicy Garlic Noodles.
These sprouts are best fresh instead of made ahead of time.
Store leftovers in the fridge for 4-5 days. Reheat in the microwave.
Yes, when making the sauce you can use less sriracha sauce if you want to. Once the sauce is ready, you can add more honey or sriracha sauce to balance the flavors to your preference.
You can roast frozen Brussels sprouts but the texture will be different. Roasted frozen sprouts will be softer and won't have the nice chew that fresh sprouts have.
I think this dish is best prepared right before you use it but it does reheat ok. The sprouts are softer after a reheat but the flavor is still fantastic.
I haven't tried it but I think maple syrup would be a nice substitute for the honey.

- 1 lb brussels sprouts (halved, stems trimmed, outer leaves set aside)
