Crispy Thai Brussels Sprouts

While visiting a restaurant in Duluth Minnesota a few years ago I had the most amazing spicy and crispy brussels sprouts! I spent a lot of time thinking about those brussels sprouts because they were honestly that good! I knew they were off plan and I just knew that I had to figure out a way to make them on plan! I did research on the flavors and found some other recipes that were close but just did not quite cut the mustard! After several different tweaks, these babies were born!


  • 1 pound fresh brussels sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or 2T coconut aminos
  • 1/2 tsp maple extract
  • 2 T Water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice about half a large lemon
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Himalayan salt


  • Cut off the stems of your brussels sprouts, slice them in half and soak them until they are clean.
  • Dry them off on a paper towel.
  • Coat the brussels sprouts in the butter and a little salt to season.
  • Place them in the airfryer at 350-390 depending on your airfryer (I do 380 in my Ninja Foodie) for 30-45 minutes checking frequently and tossing with tongs after 20 minutes. Airfry until they look crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
  • While the brussels sprouts are air frying add the remaining ingredients to a sauce pan and reduce. (approximately 5 minutes)
  • Once the Brussels sprouts are tender inside and crispy outside take them out of the airfryer and toss in the reduction!
