“Throwing beautiful asparagus on the griddle really makes the most of their incredible flavour ”
- 800 g asparagus
- ½ a lemon
- olive oil
- Parmesan cheese , for grating
- Wash whichever kind of asparagus you’re using, with their woody ends snipped off.
- Heat a large griddle pan and dry-griddle the asparagus spears on both sides until nicely marked. As soon as they’re ready, put them on to four plates and dress with a good squeeze of lemon juice and three times as much olive oil.
- Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste, then take a block of Parmesan to the table and either grate or shave some over the asparagus with a speed peeler.
