Enjoy the best of British with delicious seasonal asparagus, drizzled with vibrant basil and citrus gremolata. A light and tangy vegetarian dish that makes a wonderful starter or flavoursome side.
- Blitz the bread to rough crumbs in a food processor. Set aside.
- To make the gremolata, heat 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a frying pan over a low-medium heat. Fry the breadcrumbs for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden and crisp. Add the citrus zests and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fry for about 30 seconds, remove from the heat, then stir in the chopped basil.
- Steam the asparagus for 3-4 minutes, until just tender. Transfer to a serving platter. Scatter over the gremolata and drizzle with 2 tbsp lemon juice and the remaining olive oil.
