I had the slowly Poached Egg jamón serrano, chorizo, smoked cheese and rice cracker crusted asparagus last Friday night at Degustation and have been craving asparagus ever since. Who else does some amazing, creative asparagus dishes in NYC?
Sautee a variety of interesting mushrooms, toss in some roasted red peppers . While this mixture is still hot, spread over cooked but still crisp asparagus. Top with crumbled goat cheese and drizzle on a nice balsamic vinegar.
I forget the restaurant but we had the best asaparagus app. It was roasted with parm cheese over the top forming kinda a crust - the asaparagus was cooked to just the right texture. It sounds easy to make - wrong, i tried to do it at home but it just wasn't the same.
Crispo has a number of asparagus dishes, both appetizers and sides. There are several different dishes that incorporate prosciutto and different italian cheeses with asparagus. The roasted asparagus dishes are particularly good.
Not neccesarily creative but easy to make at home, wrap asparagus in prosciutto, drizzle a little olive oil and bake 10-15 minutes at around 425. Real Good. Or try it steammed and drizzle truffle oil over it. Simple but awesome.
