  • 24 asparagus tips (about 150g)



    Labour-intensive to grow, asparagus are the young shoots of a cultivated lily plant. They're…

  • 4 large slices good ham, cut into thirds, or 6 smaller slices, halved
  • 50g soft salted butter
  • good squeeze lemon juice
  • 12 mini sub roll
  • little salad cream


  1. Cook asparagus for 1-2 mins in boiling salted water. Drain well and dry on kitchen paper. Group in twos, then roll up in a slice of ham. Mash the butter with some black pepper and the lemon juice. Split rolls down the middle, but don’t cut completely in half. Spread with a little butter, then add an asparagus wrap to each like you would a hotdog. Add a squirt of salad cream, if you like.
