Wash the brussel sprouts, remove stem and outer leaves and cut them in half. Wash the pears and slice them in about 8 to 12 wedges per pear depending on the size.
Place the lemon juice, maple syrup, salt, mustard and pour over the sliced brussel sprouts and pears. Mix well by hand to make sure the sauce is well distributed.
Spread out the brussels sprouts, face down, and the pears on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Save the leftover marinade.
Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes until golden and everything is cooked through. Scoop everything back in the bowl to soak up the remaining sauce and serve it warm or cold.
Leftovers are great as an addition to a salad.
