Grilled asparagus

We are orthodox Christians in our family and we do not have the tradition to celebrate Saint Valentine's day. But I think, some romance is good for every couple and this is a good opportunity to celebrate love. So I wanted to serve for dinner something light and easy to prepare, but it was supposed to bring festive touches to the table. 


Asparagus. Simply grilled. With a smoky flavour and crispy texture. Just with a soft boiled egg and some Parma ham for everybody. Really good idea. Well, outside is - 20° Celsius, so it had to be indoor grilling. My grill pan is good enough to give the foods grillmarks we love, so in less than 10 minutes I was ready. 
We wanted to enhance the joy and used our fingers instead of silverware. 
A good beginning of a long night. 

Ingredients:
  • 20 stalks fresh asparagus
  • 50 g butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • soft boiled eggs and Parma ham (optional)
Preparation:
Cut off the woody bottoms of the stalks. Heat a grill pan on high heat, spread some butter over its surface and arrange the asparagus spears. Flip after 3-4 minutes to grill the other side. Serve immediately.
