Equipment

  • egg piercer

Ingredients

  • 16 pc asparagus large not pencil thin
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ lb prosciutto di parma sliced thin

Dressing

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried mustard
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Instructions

Eggs

  • pierce eggs with egg piercer
  • boil water in a sauce pan and gently add eggs
  • boil eggs for 10 minutes and then turn off heat. Leave eggs in hot water.

Asparagus

  • peel the stem of asparagus and cut an inch off bottom. Rinse in cold water.
  • Boil water in a large, deep frying pan. Asparagus need to lay flat in pan.
  • add asparagus to pan so they are completely submerged in water
  • boil for 5 or 6 minutes until bright green and fork tender
  • remove from heat and place asparagus in ice and water to stop cooking

Dressing

  • Mix ingredients together and whisk rapidly until emulsified.
  • Taste to adjust salt and pepper

Assemble Plate

  • Peel eggs and separate yolk from white. Chop each separately
  • Lay 4 asparagus on each plate
  • Drizzle dressing over asparagus
  • Top with a line of chopped egg yolk and chopped egg white
  • Add sliced prosciutto and serve

Notes

I always pierce my eggs with an egg piercer before I boil them. This prevents the dark line appearing between the yolk and white and will also make the egg easier to peel.
