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.
6 Quail Eggs
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt to season
2 tablespoons of hollandaise
Half a teaspoon of smoked paprika
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.
