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.

  4. Meanwhile, poach eggs until whites are set, yet yolks are still soft, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. 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.

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add sesame seeds and cook, while stirring, over moderate heat, until lightly browned. Add lemon juice, orange juice, and sesame oil. Whisk to completely blend. Add salt to taste.

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.

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.

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.
