Trim and remove stems from brussels sprouts. Place in a large pot and boil for 10 minutes until tender.
In a skillet, add two tablespoons olive oil and one shallot (thinly sliced). Cook for 3 minutes on medium heat then add the salt, pepper, and smoked paprika to the pan. Stir well and then add brussels sprouts: stirring so that the shallots and seasoning cover the sprouts. Cook for 5 additional minutes. Once the Brussels sprouts are done sprinkle with fresh thyme and serve!
