Great as a healthy snack or as part of a great dinner


  • 250 Grams Fresh asparagus
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Dark soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Light soy sauce
  • ½ Teaspoons Mustard
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 Pinch Black pepper
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons Boiling water
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    This recipe is great when in season and is even better if you can get hold of some really nice big spears.

    Step 2

    Firstly if the asparagus are not trimmed, gently bend the end of the spears until the woody portion breaks off, then set aside.

    Step 3

    In a small cup mix the oil, soy, honey and mustard with a pastry brush.

    Step 4

    Once mixed well, add the boiling water and stir to turn the honey into a paste.

    Step 5

    Heat a thick pan or griddle to a medium high heat and lightly brush with the mixture.

    Step 6

    Once smoking add the spears and turn every minute for 2-3 minutes.

    Step 7

    As soon as the spears start to char, baste them with the sauce whilst turning for a further 3-4 minutes or until lovely and tender.

    Step 8

    Once cooked turn out onto a plate, season with a good pinch of pepper and lightly brush with the left over mixture to serve.
