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