  1. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer pieces to a paper towel lined plate. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat and drain off any excess. Add reserved bacon fat back to the pan and heat over medium-high heat. Saute shallots until they start to soften, about 1-2 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts to the skillet, cut side down, and water. Cook, stirring frequently, for 8-10 minutes or until the sprouts are tender and the cut sides are browned. Stir in balsamic vinegar and bacon, season with sea salt and black pepper, and serve.
