We’ve been asking GC members to nominate their favourite Christmas dish ideas. For a tasty side dish we’ve made Gordie’s Sticky Chilli Sprouts, using his new favourite Chilli Death Jam by Trodden Black. No more boring boiled sprouts necessary!

Gordie's Sticky Chilli Sprouts

  • 300g Sprouts, halved
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 thumb sized piece of ginger
  • 1 bunch scallions- hold back 2 for garnish
  • 2 fresh red chillies, chopped
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds

For sticky glaze:


Heat splash of oil in wide, non-stick frying pan.

Add chopped scallions, chopped garlic, minced ginger and chillies to pan and cook gently for 5 minutes.

Add sprouts and cook until golden and starting to soften.

Add glaze to the pan and stir gently to coat.

Allow to reduce and become sticky.

Check seasoning and transfer to warm serving bowl.

Sprinkle with chopped scallions, more fresh chilli (optional) and sesame seeds to serve.
