Sautéed Lemon Pepper Brussels Sprouts

I've been on a HUGE Brussels sprout kick lately, sauteing them up for lunch, or as a side dish for dinner.  They are so delicious.  I like to keep mine very simple - some salt and fresh lemon juice does the trick my friends.  Ah, the perfect springtime food!  Please try this one for me.   
Curious about these cute little greens?  See here for their history, nutritional info and more. 

-1 lb of Brussels 
-1/2 cup leeks (optional, but worth it)
-1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
-1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice  
-Fresh ground pepper to taste (optional, but worth it)
-2 tablespoons oil of choice (I use grapeseed)

How To
1.  Add oil, leeks and salt to a large saute pan.  Sauté on medium heat until wilted and soft (about 5 minutes).
2.  Trim, slice and wash the Brussels.  Add to leeks and sauté on medium heat.
3.  When Brussels are slightly wilted turn off heat and add in lemon juice and mix.  I like my Brussels with a bit of crunch (not mushy).    
4.  Serve warm or room temp (or cold).  Garnish with fresh ground pepper.  
Serves 4
