How To Make Mexican-style British Asparagus with Lime & Sour Cream Glaze…

Happy Wednesday.

One of my favourite vegetables has to be asparagus. I love the taste of these and could easily eat them every day.

Today I am sharing a tasty asparagus recipe with you.

Add a Mexican twist to your asparagus by adding this superb lime and sour cream glaze. Pop it on the barbecue or onto a griddle pan and you’re good to go.

How To Make Mexican-style British Asparagus with Lime & Sour Cream Glaze:

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes

You’ll need:

  • 1 bunch British asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • ½ lime
  • 20g parmesan, finely grated
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin

What to do:

  1. Brush the asparagus with oil and cook on the barbecue for 5 minutes, turning regularly. Meanwhile combine the sour cream and lime juice, and in a separate bowl combine the cheese and spices.

  3. Add a little more or less spice to suit your taste.

    I run out of ideas for using asparagus and end up just cooking it in butter. This looks great!

    The picture on this one just drew me in. Asparagus is my favourite vegetable and I often have it with poached egg or hollandaise but am now definitely going to try it with parmesan. It looks amazing!
