  • Summary

    Deep-fried Brussels sprouts are a popular side dish at Ssäm Bar. Cooked in a hot oven (easier for the home cook), they still get that nutty sweetness and nicely browned crisp exterior. Rice Krispies, standing in for Indian puffed rice (which is more difficult to find), add crunch, while sous-chef Tien Ho's Vietnamese-style dressing lends the sprouts an offbeat complexity.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise
    • 3 tablespoons canola oil
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1/4 cup Asian fish sauce (preferably Tiparos brand)
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 3 tablespoons finely chopped mint
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro stems
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 (1 1/2-inch) fresh red Thai chile, thinly sliced crosswise, including seeds
    • 1/2 cup crisp rice cereal such as Rice Krispies
    • 1/4 teaspoon canola oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon shichimi togarashi (Japanese seven-spice blend)
    • Garnish: cilantro sprigs; torn mint leaves; chopped scallions
