Toma!!! Tortilla Encrusted Flounder with Bourbon Garlic Butter Brussel Sprouts


Growing up my mom made the best brussel sprouts! I think most people have a distaste for brussel sprouts because they don’t know how to cook them. I saw some beautiful brussel sprouts at my local grocery store and I had to make them. For dinner this evening, I made Bourbon garlic butter braised brussel sprouts with tortilla encrusted flounder…Riquisimo!


1lb of brussel sprouts
3 tbs. of salted butter
2 cloves of crushed garlic
1/3 cup of Bourbon
1 tsp. of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
3 Flounder filets
1/2 cup of buttermilk
Multi-coloured tortillas
1tsp. of Adobo seasoning
2 lime wedges


Tortilla encrusted flounder:

– Season flounder filets with Adobo seasoning and marinate in buttermilk for an hour in the refrigerator
– Crunch multi-coloured tortilla chips with your hands until the chips are of a small corn flake consistency
– Remove filets from buttermilk bath and remove any excess milk
– Coat filets with the tortilla chips and bake in an oven for 30-40 min. at 375 degrees

Bourbon Brussel Sprouts:

– Sauté brussel sprouts in salted butter and minced garlic at a medium low heat
– Season with sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
– Add Bourbon, cover and summer at a low heat for 10 minutes

*Serve with rice or couscous with lime wedges or avocado slices
