This is a bold and spiky piece from Sabrina Ghayour.
For the adventurous lovers of preserved lemons. And fresh, young in season asparagus.
35 mins | serves up to 6 | easy
300g asparagus spears, trimmed
3 preserved lemons, deseeded and finely chopped
3 pickled red chillies, finely sliced
bunch mint leaves, chopped
sea salt flakes and freshly ground pepper
Get the asparagus into a shallow bowl and pour over just enough boiling water to cover. Steep for 5 minutes. Remove from the hot water with a slotted spoon and transfer to cold water to cool. Once cooled, dry the excess moisture from the spears with kitchen paper.
Halve the asparagus spears lengthways and place them in a bowl. Add the preserved lemons, pickled chillies, fresh mint and loads of black pepper, then drizzle with olive oil, mix well and serve.
