Steps by step instructions
How to make Low Carb Asian BBQ Brussel Sprouts?
STEP 1: Preheat the Air Fryer to 350°F. Then trim and wash the brussel sprouts. Cut in half and then toss with the olive oil and salt.
STEP 2: Transfer the brussel sprouts to the air fryer basket. Air fryer at 350°F for 8 minutes, then toss and air fryer for another 5 minutes.
STEP 3: While the brussel sprouts are in the air fryer make the asian bbq sauce by combining all the glaze ingredients in a medium saucepan or frying pan. Simmer on the stove top on low-medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Once the brussels are done transfer them to the sauce pan and toss in the glaze until well coated and mixed through.
Transfer back to the air fryer basket and air fry at 280°F for 2 minutes.
Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and enjoy!
Preheat oven to 400°F and bake the brussel sprouts cut side down for about 20 minutes on a sheet pan, flipping halfway through. Once the glaze is prepared, toss with the sprouts and then place back on the sheet pan and roast at 400°F for another 2-3 minutes.
How to store leftovers?
It's highly unlikely you will have any leftovers as these low carb asian bbq brussel sprouts are quite addictive. However, if you do you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge up to 5 days. Reheat in the air fryer at 300°F for 3-5 minutes. I do not recommend freezing them as they will be mushy when thawed.

No, soaking them is not necessary.
A serving of these low carb asian brussel sprouts contain roughly 3g net carbs per serving and therefore should be ok for diabetics. However, different foods affect people differently and you should always monitor your blood sugars to see how it affects you personally.
