Lemony Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Cod with Lemon Cream

lemonyRoastedBrussels.jpg

I’m already of the humble opinion that brussels sprouts can do no wrong. And then I go and discover this little lemony treat…and yep….I like them even better than before! It’s subtle yet savory; zesty yet ever so slightly sweet with the occasional caramelized crisp piece. Can you tell I’m in love?

And so good paired with a great piece of fish (I opted for Cod) and Lemon Cream. If you know me, you know I love a good cream sauce on nearly anything, and this one is one of my favorites!

For the brussels sprouts, I added almonds but they can absolutely be eliminated if you are currently excluding them.
