Grilled asparagus, Paprika Goat Cheese and orange segments

Grilled asparagus, Paprika Goat Cheese and orange segments

What better way to get ready for spring and summer, than preparing this beautifully colourful and delicious salad? The grilled asparagus with paprika goats cheese and orange segments salad is full of contrasts in taste and texture and commands presence on any dinner table. The grilled al dente asparagus or the award-winning Paprika Goats cheese are good enough to be served as stand-alone side dishes in their own right, but when combined with the contrasting orange and sour vinaigrette, along with a crunchy touch of walnut, something magical happens!

Grilled asparagus, Paprika Goat Cheese and orange segmentsIngredients for 4:

For the Vinaigrette:

  • 1 tsp full of honey
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Extra Virgin olive Oil
  • 1 handful of walnuts

On a hot grill, put a few drops of oil, and sear the asparagus making sure that it remains al dente, and season. Remember that asparagus continues to cook after removal from the grill, so place them in a cool plate and separate so that they are not piled up on top of each other, otherwise the steam will continue to cook and make them soggy.

Grilled asparagus, Paprika Goat Cheese and orange segments

Place the asparagus in the dish alternating with the orange segments and crumble the Paprika Goat cheese all over.

Add the walnut vinaigrette and serve with a final crack of black pepper. Delicious!!

Peas with Iberico ham and poached egg

To prepare this recipe for peas with ham, ideally peas are fresh but as the season is so short, and have a high price,it is best that we use ultra frozen peas or, ultimately, preserved.

peas_ham_poached_egg4

While ” poached eggs ” cook, we can start preparing the recipe of peas and ham. Heat a pan with olive oil and the spring onion thinly sliced, less than 1mm.
Add the diced ham and toss the peas, previously cooled with water in the pan. Cover with a lid and let cook five minutes.
