Ingredients

  • 40g unsalted butter, softened
  • Finely grated zest of ½ orange
  • Small handful of fresh flatleaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1kg fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 200g pack cooked and peeled whole chestnuts, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Make the orange butter. Put the butter, zest and parsley in a bowl, season, and beat until smooth. Wrap in greaseproof paper and chill for 15 minutes.
  2. Wash the sprouts in salted water. Drain, rinse, and discard any damaged leaves. Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the sprouts and blanch for 3-4 minutes. Drain and plunge into cold water. Repeat, until cool, then drain and set aside.
  3. Just before serving, melt half the orange butter in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the sprouts and chestnuts and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, until tender. Season and put in a serving dish. Dot the rest of the butter over the top to serve.
