Serves 2 (Ideal for Sharing)
3 tablespoons of Azada Olive Oil & Lemon (+ 1 tablespoon for cooking)
50 grams fresh asparagus
1 small radish, thinly sliced
2 large eggs
20 ml milk
A small handful of fresh spearmint and parsley, finely chopped
¼ juice of fresh lemon
1 teaspoon lemon vinegar
¼ teaspoon mirin
Freshly ground sea salt and black pepper for seasoning
A little lemon zest for garnishing
Snap the ends off the asparagus and cut into halves. Blanch the asparagus in salted boiling water for 3 to 4 minutes (depending on thickness). Drain in a colander and immediately transfer to ice water for 1 minute to stop the cooking process and set aside.
Meanwhile, add the 3 tablespoons of Azada Olive Oil & Lemon, lemon vinegar, mirin, freshly chopped herbs to a small pouring jar. Season with salt and pepper and give it a quick whisk.
Next, heat the tablespoon of Azada Olive Oil & Lemon in a frying pan over a medium high heat. As the frying pan is coming up to heat, whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the mixture to the frying pan and turn and fold them repeatedly as they cook using a spatula, continue folding them until they no longer look runny, but still look wet.
Transfer the eggs to a serving plate and scatter the asparagus and radish on top. Pour over the lemon vinaigrette and serve warm with sliced bread.
