Teriyaki Brussels Sprouts
I'm so excited to share this Teriyaki Brussels Sprouts recipe with y'all today! This recipe idea actually started from a fishing trip. The Hubs went fishing in the Gulf of Mexico last year before the babies were born for tuna. He came back with vacuum-sealed packets of the most beautiful tuna ever. Sadly since I was very pregnant and was avoiding high mercury fish I couldn't eat it. As a seafood lover, I was super sad!
Fast forward to earlier this summer when I could eat tuna again and we still had some of the tuna stashed away. We started cooking it simply seared with sesame seeds and a side of soy sauce. I wanted an Asian-inspired side dish to go with it and came up with this crazy easy Roasted Teriyaki Brussels Sprouts recipe. It was honestly SO GOOD we enjoyed it as much as the tuna. I proceeded to make it several weeks in a row until we ate our way through the tuna.
At first, I thought it was too easy and simple to share BUT then I came to my senses and realized this is exactly the kind of recipe we all need. Simple, super tasty, and the kind you can enjoy on repeat week after week.
Why You'll Love this Roasted Teriyaki Brussels Sprouts recipe...
The reason I wasn't sure about sharing this recipe was that it uses regular ole' bottled teriyaki sauce. BUT honestly, with two babies I don't have time to whip up a lot of my own sauces these days. I know I'm not the only one who goes through a busier phase of life. Kitchen shortcuts are a way of life these days.
But because this recipe is so simple it's the type you will learn and make over and over.
You are going to love this Roasted Teriyaki Brussels Sprouts recipe because it is only 3 ingredients but still tastes like a FLAVOR BOMB in your mouth!
The Secrets to Crispy Asian Brussel Sprouts
The secret to making this recipe is roasting your brussels sprouts until they get nice and crispy. I think they taste the best when they almost looked burnt. You roast them in sesame oil to bring out some extra Asian-inspired flavor. Roasting on high heat can help get them crispy.
AFTER roasting the sprouts you toss them in your favorite high-quality bottled teriyaki sauce. I love serving them with chopsticks and a little extra teriyaki on the side.
If you are feeling fancy you can even sprinkle some sesame seeds on top!
Ingredients in this Roasted Teriyaki Brussels Sprouts recipe
- Brussels Sprouts: Look for fresh Brussels sprouts that have a pretty green color. Trim off the hard ends and cut the sprouts in half to prepare them.
- Sesame Oil: I really like the way a touch of toasted sesame oil adds just a bit of flavor. I use this oil for the actual roasting of the sprouts.
- Teriyaki Sauce: Make your own OR use your favorite store-bought to keep this recipe simple. If you are gluten-free be sure to pick out a gluten-free sauce.
I LOVE the ALDI teriyaki sauce! <--- Not sponsored just what I buy!
Did you know that Brussels sprouts are actually super healthy for you! They have vitamins like cabbage and are packed with folate, fiber, vitamin C and K. They are also packed with more nutrients than kale or broccoli!

You do NOT need to blanch your fresh Brussels sprouts before roasting. Just wash them and cook them in the oven from raw.
