Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

450 Gram(s) Asparagus, 1lb
1/2 Lemon, juice of
100 Gram(s) Parmesan cheese, 4oz
1 Teaspoon(s) Freshly ground black pepper
Trim the woody stalks off the asparagus. Fill a tall asparagus pan
with water and bring to the boil. Place the asparagus, stalk end down,
into the pan and simmer for 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness
of the asparagus spears. The tips of the asparagus must only be
submerged for the final 2 minutes of cooking, otherwise they will
overcook and become slimy. Drain. Pre-heat the grill. Place the
asparagus in a gratin dish and sprinkle over the lemon juice. Grate
50g (2oz) parmesan cheese on the coarse holes of a cheese grater, and
gently stir through the asparagus. Slice the remaining parmesan cheese
into fine curls on the blade of a standard cheese grater. Scatter over
the asparagus and sprinkle with black pepper. Grill for 4-5 minutes
until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown. Serve immediately with
more freshly ground black pepper. Converted by MC_Buster. Converted
