  1. Trim the sprouts and halve through the stem. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add half the sprouts, season and cook for 5-6 mins until lightly charred. Don’t stir too often, as this will prevent charring. Transfer to a bowl, then repeat with the other 1 tbsp olive oil and the remaining sprouts.
  2. Return the first batch of sprouts to the pan with the red onion, then lower the heat to medium-high and add the kale, a handful at a time, wilting each handful slightly before adding more. Season, add a splash of water, then cook for 3-4 mins until the veg is tender. Add the orange juice and butter, and cook, stirring, until melted.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl and scatter over the hazelnuts to serve.
