Grilled Asparagus With Lemon Vinaigrette


I like making this Grilled Asparagus With Lemon Vinaigrette, served with some crunchy Serrano Ham. Toss some lemon vinaigrette over the asparagus before grilling. The grilled asparagus will be sweet, smoky, and crisp. As for the ham, just grill over medium heat until golden brown. Then, let it cool down before gently break them into smaller pieces. Drizzle some lemon vinaigrette before serving and top the asparagus with some crunchy Serrano ham. Sounds yummy? Try it!

Ingredients

600 g Asparagus, discard the tough ends
100 g Thinly Sliced Serrano Ham

Lemon Vinaigrette
1 tsp Mustard
3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
¼ Cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Method

Prepare the grill for direct cooking on medium heat.

Combine the mustard and lemon juice in a small bowl. Whisk in the olive oil until emulsified and season with sea salt and pepper.

Grill the ham for about 1 minute on each side until golden brown in color. Let the ham cool completely and gently break them into smaller pieces.

Lightly toss the asparagus with 2 Tbsp of the lemon vinaigrette. Grill the asparagus for about 6 to 7 minutes, turning once or twice until they are tender.

Serve the grilled asparagus with some lemon vinaigrette and top it with some crunchy Serrano ham. Serve immediately.

  4. Congrats indeed! I was thinking about wine to go with this and I have standby Sauvignon Blanc I have used with asparagus in the past from Jibe which hails from New Zealand.
