Asparagus Tempura Soba

This is a classic Japanese way with soba and tempura. Strickly speaking the asparagus tempura is kaki-age, made like a tempura fritter rather than individual spears coated in tempura. But such academic details seem trivial when it comes to tempura – any tempura is amazing – especially asparagus!

Asparagus Niçoise Salad

The exact constituent parts of an authentic Niçoise salad is a matter of contentious debate. There must be as many points of view as there are cooks. So I am throwing my hat into the ring and offer up Niçoise with asparagus!!

Asparagus in Miso Dressing

Like sesame sauce, miso ends up in sauces and dressing for many classic Japanese salads. Here I’ve combined miso with asparagus to make a rather exotic salad – wasabi on the side adds piquancy and a touch of jeopardy to the dish.

Asparagus and Tuna Sesame

It’s a Japanese way to mix sesame sauces in with food – I suspect the reason is because the sauce is so good it can’t help being slipped into all sorts of dishes. Here, I’ve married the sauce with asparagus and tuna. In some respects, it reminds me of the filling of a tuna fish and asparagus sandwhich filling, so good, you want start eating it before it gets anywhere near a slice of bread…

Asparagus, Tofu, Avocado, Sesame

Asparagus and nuts have an affinity – I’ve used hazelnuts and seen recipes with pistachios, so sesame should – and does – marry well. Avocado and tofu work well together, and asparagus eats well with avocado. This recipe brings all these flavour combination together in a Japanese style dish.

Asparagus Fondue

Asparagus goes well with Parmesan cheese. Asparagus also goes well with Taleggio and Gruyèr. It seems we can assume that asparagus works with cheese generally – so why not a fondue?

Asparagus Pizza

Asparagus and Potted Shrimp

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

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

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!
