Fresh Asparagus Patties

Posted on








Ingredients for 6 asparagus patties:


1 pound fresh asparagus spears, trimmed, blanched in well salted water (it should taste like sea water)


salt, freshly ground black pepper, and cayenne to taste


1 ounce finely grated pecorino cheese, or Parmigiano-Reggiano (about 1 unpacked cup after grating on a microplane)


1/3 cup plain dried breadcrumbs


2 large eggs


olive oil, as needed for frying


fresh lemon to garnish and/or use in your *sauce




* My sauce was simply mayonnaise spiked with raw garlic, lemon juice, and a pinch of cayenne.


happy cooking.
