Asparagus and Potted Shrimp

Enjoyed by Bill

Asparagus and shellfish have an affinity with one another – prawns and crab are known as being particularly good partners. It occurred to me that the small brown shrimp form Morecombe Bay are ‘potted’ in butter, and we know that asparagus and butter go together – so here’s my asparagus and shellfish combination, and very fine it is too.

Asparagus Vignarola

Enjoyed by Bill

This is an Italian stew made from spring vegetables including artichokes, broad beans, peas. My version includes asparagus, which shares the sweet earthy taste of main ingredients. In some versions the vegetables are deliverately overcooked. However, here they are cooked till tender and arranged over grilled polenta.

San Joaquin Battered Asparagus

Enjoyed by Bill

In San Joaquin County, at Stockton California they stage an Asparagus Festival in April. Stockton is the centre of asparagus growing in California so it makes sense to celebrate the crop. I’ve always been fascinated by the huge spears and takeaway fairground style of eating. I reckon these are as near as your going to get to the Stockton real McCoys. Eat al fresco!

Asparagus Bruschetta

Enjoyed by Bill

Most asparagus bruschetta recipes use goats cheese. I tried this and it’s okay but unremarkable, so I made a artichoke and cannellini bean puree to replace the cheese – it’s much better.

Asparagus and Potato Samosas

This is an asparagus spin on a pea and potato samosa. I’ve held back on some of the spices to allow the asparagus to shine through.

Asparagus Spring Roll

Enjoyed by Bill

Spring rolls never fail to impress or delight. These rolls are designed to celebrate the asparagus season and although they taste deliciously Asian, you really can taste the asparagus. It works a treat.

Asian asparagus salad in a rice paper wrap – not your usual way with asparagus – but well worth the effort.

Weisswurst

Enjoyed by Bill

One source indicates there are at least 43 categories of German sausage – and who knows how many further vatiations… I’m familiar with about 5. One of these is new for me – weisswurst – and well worth seeking out at your local German deli.
