aluminium foil or baking paper
Peel the asparagus and cut off the wooden part at the bottom. Place them in a baking tray on aluminium foil (on the shiny side).
Press the orange and halve the passion fruit. Mix the juices and bring them up to taste with brown sugar, some pepper and salt.
Halve the cherry tomatoes.
Pour the juice over the asparagus. Place some cubes of butter and the halved tomatoes on top.
Fold the aluminium foil "en papillotte". It should be hermetically closed. Place the baking tray in the oven which is preheated at 240°C.
Steam the passionate asparagus for 40 minutes in the oven.
Now you can rest for 35 minutes. Five minutes before they are ready you can start preparing the scampi.
Heat some butter in a small pan. You can also add some pili pili if you like a spicy bite. Some additional halved cherry tomatoes can also go along if you want.
Bake the scampi for a few minutes. Not too long, otherwise they are overdone.
Take the asparagus out of the oven and open the foil. this will smell delicious!!!
Check whether the asparagus are ready and transfer them to the plates. Finish with scampi and chives and enjoy with a good glass of white wine.
