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!

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.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
