Pancetta Brussels sproutsHERO

Slice the bottoms off the sprouts and remove the outer layers. Cook the sprouts in a pan of boiling, salted water for 6-8 minutes, until tender.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a pan and cook the pancetta until it is crisp. Remove from the pan and leave to cool slightly before breaking into smaller pieces.

When the sprouts are cooked, drain and place in a serving bowl. Pour over the olive oil from the pan along with the lemon juice. Add the crisp pancetta, lemon zest and black pepper. Toss well to infuse all the flavours and serve.
