Spring means to me: the plump red and addictive sweet strawberries and the crunchy asparagus from the farms of the region. Why not bring these two fabulous  seasonal beauties together on the plate?

I love asparagus and it doesn’t matter if it is the green or white one. Asparagus tastes best for me, when it is briefly stir fried in a wok. Thus, it remains nicely crunchy. The popular Hollandaise sauce is too fat and too heavy for my taste. I prefer asparagus with a light yet aromatic sauce.

For those who just start to follow my blog since recently: the recipe for strawberry balsamic sauce can be found in the recipe collection. This sauce is easy to make and tastes delicious with vegetables and salad. The most important role is played by the homemade strawberry vinegar. This great color! This alluring sweet scent! I just love this fantastic vinegar! 😀

Ingredients:

500g white asparagus tips
200g strawberries
3 tbsp strawberry balsamic sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper

Preparation:

  1. Blanch the asparagus in the water briefly, then drain it.
  2. Wash and clean the strawberries, cut them in half.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the asparagus to it and fry for about 5 minutes . Mix the strawberries gently with the asparagus. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange asparagus and strawberries on a plate. Finally, sprinkle the strawberry balsamic sauce on it. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    I’ve never had this combo before, Qin, but it looks quite tasty! My mom makes a great crab and white asparagus soup. This reminds me of that dish. 🙂
