Griddled Asparagus

Make the most of British asparugus season with this deliciously simple recipe from Leiths' How to Cook.


Serves 4

700g asparagus, or at least 3–4 large spears per person
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Wash and prepare the asparagus (as below), dry and turn through the olive oil in a bowl to coat fully.
  2. Heat a griddle pan over a medium to high heat and griddle the asparagus in batches for 5–8 minutes, depending on size. Turn the asparagus occasionally to allow it to caramelise on all sides and cook evenly until tender.
  3. Pile the asparagus onto a plate, drizzle with a little extra olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
