TO DRINK: Mooiplaas Sauvignon Blanc 2007: flavours of tropical fruit, asparagus and figs work with this delicate dish.
Grilled asparagus with hemp oil
- 16 fresh asparagus spears
- pinch of salt
- 60ml (¼ cup) oil (we used hemp oil)
- 60ml (¼ cup) butter, melted
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
Spread the asparagus on a baking tray, season with the salt and drizzle with the oil. Toss until well coated. Heat the oven grill.
Thread the asparagus onto skewers and grill for 3 minutes on either side.
Combine the butter and garlic, then drizzle this over the asparagus and serve with trimmings of your choice, such as roast onion, garlic and tomatoes.
