Más asparagus

This time the tastes are sharper, saltier.  This is a v light lunch, best with bread and unsalted butter. Or simply double-up the quantities if you are feeling greedy. more asparagus - in the griddle pan 23-5-13Serves 2
Bunch of asparagus
Sea salt
Juice of a half lemon
Parmesan, shaved with a potato peeler
Olive oil

Wash and trim the asparagus, dry thoroughly. Put into a bowl and toss with a good slug of olive oil. Assemble all other ingredients.

Heat a ridged griddle pan until it is smoking, the griddle pan should always be heated dry. The food is oiled, not the pan.

Add the asparagus to the pan, do not leave it as it burns easily. Turn asparagus with a pair of tongs so it is nicely striped. Test with the point of a sharp knife to check if it is cooked, which will take only a couple of minutes.

Serve on a plate, sprinkle with sea salt and lemon juice. Pile the shaves of parmesan on top.

This is excellent with a glass of cold fino sherry. more asparagus - plateful 23-5-135 to remember
