Asparagus is one of our favourites for the summer months

Olive oil poached salmon with asparagus

The fresh green tender stalks can be steamed and served with poached Scottish Highland salmon, pea purée and our other favourite, Jersey Royals, for a lovely light first course.

We sometimes use them in a dish with soft-poached Burford Brown eggs, fresh peas and broad beans.

Alternatively, after steaming, they are quickly charred to give a smoky flavour and are served with those Jersey Royals which we use to fill a potato ‘cannelloni’ and turn into a creamy velouté for an amazing vegetarian main course.
