  1. Recipe Instructions In a medium cooking pot with a tight-fitting lid, set a steamer basket over 1 1/2 inches water. Add Brussels sprouts, and steam over high heat until tender, about 10 minutes. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add salt and cook, watching carefully, until butter sizzles, browns slightly, and gives off a nutty aroma. Squeeze juice from lemon halves into the pan and add the zest. Stir in Brussels sprouts; cook, shaking pan occasionally, until warmed through. This recipe yields 4 servings.
