Grilled spring onions and asparagus with lime and coarse sea salt

Side Serves 1 20 min
Sometimes the best meals are the least complicated. For this elegant, unfussy recipe the asparagus should be fairly thin – no more than 1 cm in diameter. This is good both warm and at room temperature. If you aren't keen on the lime and salt combination, another good dressing is vinaigrette. This could could be turned into a light lunch with hard-boiled eggs and garlic-rubbed bruschetta.

Ingredients

  • 4 fat spring onions or very thin baby leeks, trimmed
  • 4 asparagus spears, trimmed
  • olive or sunflower oil
  • wedges of lime
  • coarse sea salt

Method

Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 15 min
  • Step 1

    Brush the spring onions and asparagus with the oil and grill, turning until patched with brown and tender. Serve immediately with lime and sea salt.
