I was obsessed with serving lemony bok choy with some baked salmon. But no bok choy available. Since brussels sprouts are in a similar family, I messed around with them and some lemon. We liked them a lot!

Simmer over medium heat; cover; cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the water has evaporated and sprouts are not quite tender, about 6-8 minutes (add a little more water if skillet becomes dry before sprouts are done).
