This is a tasty way to present sprouts to your guests; it is a fusion between the countryside and sea that many would enjoy. Although the original version of this recipe requires broccoli instead of sprouts, and it is used for topping pasta, the version I propose is more used as a side dish. Remember that the chilli makes it very hot, so have a good glass of white wine at the ready to put out the fire!
