Method

  • Preheat the grill and coat the asparagus with olive oil and grill for around 10 minutes, until the asparagus is cooked but still firm
  • Meanwhile, poach the egg by filling a large pan with water and bring it to simmer
  • Add a splash of vinegar to the water and use a spoon to make a gentle swirl
  • Crack the egg into a small bowl, cup or a soup ladle. Be careful to keep the yolk intact. Lower it into the water and cook until it is done–approx. 3-4 minutes
  • Make the vinaigrette by combining the ingredients in a bowl and mixing well. Season to your taste
