This dish serves four and is really easy, tasty, light, and healthy! If you would prefer two eggs per person simply poach eight eggs. ;-)

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. thin asparagus, trimmed and broken into quarters
  • 4 large or extra large eggs
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice, for drizzling to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling to taste
  • fresh Parmesan cheese, finely shredded, to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Completely prepare one pot for poaching the eggs and one pot for cooking the asparagus to be ready for cooking at the same time.
  2. Steam the asparagus until they are just tender, about 2 to 3 minutes, drain and then evenly divide onto four serving plates.
  3. Meanwhile, poach eggs until whites are set, yet yolks are still soft, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Remove eggs, one at a time, from water with slotted spoon, allowing water to drain from each. Top each asparagus prepared plate with one egg, drizzle with lemon juice, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve.

Looks fantastic! I do something like this on weekends. I start with a toasted English muffin, place fresh crab meat on it. Then add the poached eggs and then the asparagus, then top it with sauce Bearnaise. It's called Eggs Oscar.

Meanwhile, bring enough water, that will cover asparagus, and 1 Tbsp. of the lemon juice to boil in a pot. Add asparagus and cook until just tender, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add asparagus to the sesame citrus sauce and toss to coat. Serve hot drizzled with a little more of the sauce and garnish with toasted sesame seeds if desired.

Hollandaise sauce is high fat high calorie but I wanted a way to make asparagus have the flavor of it without all the junk. I played around and came up with this simple dressing.

Directions:

Blanch the asparagus in the water until tender. Drain. Add olive oil or butter and toss. Gently sprinkle the lemon juice over top then add salt and pepper, toss quickly one more time. Serve right away.

I simply love asparagus and am in heaven right now because it's asparagus season. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or paper towels. Heat oil in a large heavy saucepan or deep fryer until it reaches 375 degrees F.

Easy and flavorful! The easiest way to grill asparagus is to thread several asparagus spears on to two parallel soaked wooden skewers and repeat, if necessary, until all are skewered before coating with the oil mixture.

Have you ever fried several bacon strips just because you needed the grease for seasoning? This is one of my favorite recipes and it will utilize any unused cooked bacon.

When buying asparagus look for fat stalks with tightly closed tips. Trim the bottom off. If it's tough keep cutting small portions off the end until it's more tender.
