- Cut each brussel sprout in half, from top to bottom.
- Melt the butter in a large frying pan or skillet over medium high heat.
- Once the butter has melted, add the brussel sprouts to the pan, cut side down, and season with a pinch of kosher salt.
- Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cut sides are charred, the rest of the leaves are bright green, and the brussel sprouts are just tender, approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
