Brae's asparagus and olive herb in sea butter
Spring's asparagus harvest is here for a good time, not a long time. Toss asparagus through spring-ready salads, grill them as a tasty side to steaks or salmon chops, or make asparagus the star of its own show – simply grill or boil them until tender, and serve with shallot butter, hollandaise or tonnato. The choice is yours, but choose quickly.
