The flavours of the chargrilled asparagus, creamy burrata and vibrant parsley oil all pair beautiful in this dish which would be an impressive starter or side dish.
- Start by making the parsley oil. In a high-speed blender add the parsley and olive oil and blend until smooth and bright green. Pass this through a fine sieve till you are left with a vibrant oil, then stir in the capers and set aside.
- Heat a frying pan or griddle pan. When hot, drizzle in some olive oil and add the asparagus. Toss and cook them for approximately 3 minutes until they are lightly charred and tender. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- Now you can assemble your dish. Place the burrata in the middle of a serving dish, then scatter over the charred asparagus. Drizzle over the parsley and caper oil and grate over some lemon zest. Finally finish with a pinch of Maldon salt and some cracked black pepper. Delicious when served with some toasted sourdough bread.
