First, a disclaimer, I am a habitual snitcher.... I taste everything in the various stages of preparedness (except brownie batter - I go straight to the batter with a BIG spoon, no "snitching" there). So I put the sprouts - mine were exceptionally large, so I quartered them - in the bag with the oil and seasonings. Then I tasted. oh, they were sooo good! I probably ate a good third of them like that. They were sweet and salty and I love the flavor of good EVOO. Then I cooked them. My 8-yo son said they tasted better cooked (I had made all the kids try them raw, they were so good), but he didn't eat more than the one; my 6-yo daughter and I liked them better raw; my 3-yo girl threw them up both ways, and dh wouldn't touch them at all. So my final rating is, good recipe, just don't cook them!---------edit: I have changed my mind. This is the BEST way to eat brussel sprouts. There is just no comparison. Except, I stand by my admonition to just eat them raw. I have been making a quart ziploc of these every week, and snack on them through the day - they get better the longer they sit in the marinade; I eat them for dinner when the rest of family is having carrot or cucumber sticks; 2 of my children snitch them out of the fridge when I am not looking. And if I really want to cook them, so the rest of the family will eat them, they are already marinated. All around, a happy happy recipe :)
