Put the frozen sprouts in a casserole dish with ¼ cup water.
Cover and microwave on HIGH for 10 minutes.
Spread the slivered almonds out on a plate and microwave for 3 to 4 minutes on HIGH, turning once or twice during cooking, until golden brown.
Put the butter in a bowl and melt in the microwave oven for 1-½ minutes on HIGH. Add the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
Drain the sprouts. Put into a vegetable dish and pour the lemon butter over; stir well.
Sprinkle with the slivered almonds and serve hot.
