Griddled British Asparagus with Gremolata
Cooking time: 7-8 minutes
Preparation time: 5 minutes
2 bundles British asparagus
Zest of 1 unwaxed lemon
Juice ½ lemon
2 tbsp flat leaf parsley very finely chopped
1 clove garlic crushed
Salt and pepper for seasoning
50g freshly grated breadcrumbs
1 clove garlic whole
Oil for cooking
What to do:
Trim the ends of the asparagus and coat with a little oil, cook on a pre-heated griddle pan for 4-5 minutes turning until cooked through but still retaining some bite.
For the gremalata mix the lemon juice and zest with the flat leaf parsley and garlic and season with salt and pepper.
Heat some oil in a frying pan along with a clove of garlic. Add the breadcrumbs and cook until golden. Place breadcrumbs on some kitchen paper to remove excess oil, remove the garlic and season with salt and pepper.
Toss the asparagus through the gremalata and sprinkle over the bread crumbs before serving.
