Oven Baked Asparagus , Bacon, Hard Boiled Quails Eggs With Smoked Paprika Hollandaise

A starter for two or a main dish for one , all hail the asparagus season which is as fleeting as a butterfly in the Spring breeze.



Ingredients 

Asparagus 

6 Quail Eggs

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Salt to season 

2 tablespoons of hollandaise 

Half a teaspoon of smoked paprika 

Method 

Preheat the oven to 180 c

Place the asparagus in an oven baking tin 

Toss in the love oil

Season with salt ( sea salt would be nice for this )

Place in the oven for around 6 minutes if thin Asparagus or 12 minutes if the Asparagus is really thick

Fry 2 slices of bacon to top the Asparagus


You can be boiling your Quail eggs as the Asparagus bakes in the oven 

They'll only need 2 minutes then will need to cool down , you can pour some cold water on them. They're a little tricky to shell but keep patient.

Take your Asparagus out the oven 


Mix two tablespoons of hollandaise with half a teaspoon of smoked paprika .


Artfully arrange the asparagus on the plate and place the bacon on top , scattering round the Quail eggs which have been cut in two.


Dribble the smoked Paprika hollandaise over the dish.
