Crispy fries topped with deep fried brussels sprouts and toasted peanuts tossed in a fragrant thai chili and lime juice vinaigrette.



For the Brussels Sprouts

  • 5 ounces (125g) Granulated Sugar
  • ½ cup (120ml) White Distilled Vinegar
  • ½ cup (120ml) Light Soy Sauce
  • ¼ cup (60ml) Fish Sauce
  • ¼ cup (60ml) Fresh Orange Juice
  • 3 tablespoons (18g) Fresh Ginger, grated
  • 2 each (4g) Thai Chilies, chopped
  • 1-½ tablespoons (11g) Cornstarch
  • 1-½ tablespoons (23ml) Water
  • 4 each (20g) Garlic, finely chopped
  • As Needed Vegetable Oil for Frying
  • 1 pound (454g) Brussels Sprouts, halved
  • 1 tablespoon (9g) Kosher Salt
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) Fresh Lemon Juice

For the Crispy Fries

  • 2.2 pounds (1kg) Frozen Waffle Fries (any frozen fries can be subbed)
  • As Needed Vegetable Oil for frying

To Finish the Dish

  • 1/3 cup (42g) Peanuts, toasted, chopped
  • ½ cup (50g) Fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • ½ cup (50g) Fresh Thai Basil, chopped (regular Basil can be subbed)
  • ½ cup (50g) Fresh Mint, chopped


  1. To prepare the brussels sprouts, in a medium saucepan combine the sugar, vinegar, soy, fish sauce, orange juice, ginger, and chilies. Place the saucepan over medium high heat and and boil for 3-5 minutes stirring occasionally.
  2. While the sauce is boiling whisk together the cornstarch and the water in a small bowl and add it to the sauce. Cook the sauce for 1-2 minutes until thick. Remove from the heat and stir in the garlic. Allow the sauce to infuse for about 5 minutes then strain the sauce through a fine mesh strainer. Discard the slids and reserve the sauce.
  3. Heat a fryer to 350 F (180 C). When the oil is hot, carefully add the brussels sprouts to the oil and cover with another fry basket. If doing this at home just fry the sprouts in smaller batches, being careful not to add too many in the pot at once as they tend to relieve a lot of water during frying and you don’t want a boil over. Once the sprouts are crispy drain them well and toss them with a generous amount of the sauce along with some lemon juice and salt if needed.
  4. Fry the fries for 4-6 minutes or until golden, drain and keep hot.
  5. To serve the dish, create a base of crispy fries in a bowl, then top the fries with the dressed brussels sprouts. Finally garnish with the dish with a little of the cilantro, basil, and mint. Sprinkle the top of the brussels sprout fries with the chopped peanuts.

Serve right away and enjoy!
