1 tablespoon Fino Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tablespoons
Smoked Butter, melted
2 bunches new season Asparagus, trimmed
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 200°c

Mix the Olive Oil, melted Smoked Butter, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a bowl.

Arrange the asparagus in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Pour over the butter and oil mixture and toss to ensure that all the asparagus stems are coated.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender.

Sprinkle over a large pinch on Halen Môn Sea Salt and cracked black pepper and serve garnished with curls of lemon peel for colour.

A Smoked butter, oil, and lemon mixture is also delicious when poured over boiled new potatoes.

Try using smoked butter for cooking fish and prawns, mushrooms, or even just spread it on sourdough toast!

  3. Wrap each asparagus spear with a piece of ham.
  4. Place the wrapped spears into the tray, drizzle with olive oil & season with Halen Môn Sea Salt and pepper.
  5. Bake in the oven for 5 – 10 minutes depending on the thickness of your asparagus.

And not forgetting, asparagus and Salmon go hand in hand. Whether it’s enjoyed as a light breakfast, – smoked salmon and blanched asparagus with a quick drizzle of olive oil and some salt & pepper.
