Category: Salads

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Medium-thick asparagus
  • 1 1/2 oz Pine nuts
  • 2 Eggs; poached
  • Handful rocket
  • 2 sl Parma ham
  • 1 oz Parmesan cheese; thinly
  • -sliced
  • Dressing:
  • 3 tb Olive oil
  • 1/2 tb Balsamic or sherry vinegar
  • Salt and pepper


Trim off the woody ends of the asparagus. Cut off the top inch of the
stalks and cut the rest into inch length. Drop the shorter bits into salted
boiling water, simmer for two minutes, then add the tips. Cook for a
further 2/3 minutes, then drain, run under the cold tap, and drain again
thoroughly. Dry-fry the pine nuts in a heavy pan over a high heat. Whisk
the oil into the vinegar and season.

Just before serving, poach the eggs. Toss the rocket and asparagus in just
enough of the dressing to coat evenly. Arrange on two plates. Drape a slice
of parma ham over each, scatter with pine nuts, nestle a poached egg on top
and strew with flakes of parmesan.
