Recipe Name: Asparagus, Poached Egg And Pine-nut Salad Submitted by: Administrator
Source: Source Description:
Ethnicity: Last Modified: 2/22/2014
Base: Salads Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 2

1/2 Pound(s) Medium-thick asparagus
1 1/2 Ounce(s) Pine nuts
2 Eggs, poached
Handful rocket
2 Parma ham
1 Ounce(s) Parmesan cheese, thinly
3 Tablespoon(s) Olive oil
1/2 Tablespoon(s) 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. Posted to EAT-L Digest 11
