    I made this to go with our holiday dinner and it was outrageously good. Instead of orange juice and zest, I used the juice of one lemon thinned with some water and the lemon zest. I was out of walnuts so I substituted toasted sliced almonds. Everyone just raved about this. I will definitely make this again, using my substitutions.  -  25 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love brussels sprouts and this is a great recipe! The orange complements the sprouts very well. I used some smoked alder wood salt while cooking, and sprinkled on some bleu cheese when finished. A bowl full was very filling and made a whole meal.  -  07 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We just had this for our side dish with dinner and it was FABULOUS. A few changes I made: Oven roasted them at 375 degrees with the walnut oil for 30 minutes/added juice of half an orange for final 10 minutes and finished with the zest of half an orange, kosher salt and fresh black pepper. We did not add any nuts and probably will not add them in the future -these were FABULOUS and both my husband and I think they were the best we have ever had! DELISH!!!  -  06 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
