4. After around 4 minutes, or when the sprouts and leeks are nicely caramelised all over, turn off the heat. Add the lime zest, juice and chopped chives, toss to coat and place on a serving plate.

5. In a clean frying pan set on a medium heat, add the walnuts and toss to get gently toast. After a few minutes when nicely browned, turn off the heat and add the spicy Spanish paprika, toss to combine and scatter across your zesty sprouts.


If you don't have a lime to hand, a lemon will work just as well.
