Asparagus Obsession

Beautiful asparagus are bang in season this time of year, and they taste amazing!! It's been impossible to find Irish ones this year (very sad) but British ones definitely hit the spot, hopefully next year Ireland will have better weather and the growers will have more luck.

I love keeping asparagus dishes really simple. I just wash them, throw them on a hot griddle pan for a few minutes until they soften a little and have a few char marks (on a BBQ is the best way to do these), then drizzle them with extra virgin olive oil, freshly grated lemon zest, salt and pepper. And that's it! I love them a little tender but still crunchy and holding their shape. So if you love asparagus like me, enjoy them while you can as they'll be going out of season very soon and we'll have to wait until next year to get them again!
