The asparagus season is there again. On a pub in the belgian television I saw this recipe. Again an interesting combination worth trying. The dutch version can be found here.

Ingredients for 4 persons (as a starter):

  • 500 grams of asparagus
  • 0.3 dl olive oil
  • 50 grams chorizo ​​sausage
  • Zest of half a lime
  • Salt, pepper
  • 50g parmesan grated cheese
  • Rocket salad


  • Peel the asparagus and cut the bottom ends off.
  • Cut the chorizo ​​sausage into small pieces
  • Boil the asparagus for 3 minutes and drain on a damp cloth.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the chorizo ​​sausage.
  • Add the zest to the chorizo ​​oil and let it simmer.
  • Grill the asparagus in a hot grill pan.
  • Arrange the asparagus on a plate, drizzle with chorizo ​​oil and season with pepper and parmesan. Garnish with rocket salad.
