"When you eat a lot of spicy food, you can lose your taste. When I was in India last summer, I was listening to a lot of Michael Bolton." -Jimmy Carr
The bitterness of brussels sprouts is really balanced by the salty-spicy flavor of the Sriracha sauce. It just needs a bit of sweetness and the jam brings that out in this dish with the added benefit of helping create a terrific glaze.
Check the label of your Sriracha to make sure of the sodium content. This varies widely. The USDA reports only about 50 milligrams per teaspoon, but one of the most popular, Huy Fong Foods Chili Garlic Sauce, contains 95 milligrams per teaspoon so you might have to adjust your added salt a bit to keep the flavors balanced.
