Recipe by Enara ParraCourse: Appetizers, Starter


Prep time




  • 8 fresh white asparagus

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 3.5 L water


  • Heat the water in a large pot.
  • Peel the asparagus.
  • Add salt to the boiling water and place the asparagus one by one. Boil them for 20 mins.
  • Take a large dish and place the asparagus inside while they are still warm. Cover them with the water you use to cook them, be careful as it will be hot.
  • Wait until it cools down to eat them or keep them in the refrigerator for next day.


  • The easiest way to eat them is cold with some mayo on top of it, but I will share soon a nice recipe to eat them grilled with mushrooms.
