Simple guide for preparing asparagus with ham and hollandaise sauce.
For Sauce Hollandaise
|30-50||ml||chili pepper dry|
|Salt (I use Himalayan salt!)|
|Pepper (I’m using white pepper here!)|
Ham and Asparagus
|300||g||Black Forest ham (thinly cut into slices)|
|1||bunch||white asparagus (You can also use green asparagus!)|
|Salt (I use Himalayan salt!)|
|1||tbs||butter (Du kannst auch von der geklärten Butter für die Soße etwas nehmen!)|
|1||bunch||chives (Du kannst auch Petersilie oder Kerbel verwenden!)|
Place the stainless steel striking bowl from the mixer or another high and thick stainless steel bowl in the oven.
Place the plates in the oven to serve.
Heat the oven at 80-100°C hot air.
Prepare the reduction for the Hollandaise sauce:
Peel the shallot, cut into fine cubes and bring to the boil with white wine, water, vinegar, parsley, tarragon, bay leaf and peppercorns.
Reduce the reduction to 3-4 tablespoons, pass through a sieve and make ready.
Heat the butter for the Hollandaise sauce in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
Clarify the butter to a light brown shade, then pass through a fine sieve and let it temper next to the stove (approx. 90°C).
Peel the asparagus and cook in salted water with some sugar until al dente.
Remove the asparagus and drain.
Wrap the ham slices around the asparagus spears and keep warm in the oven.
Whisk egg yolk
Remove the warm stainless steel bowl from the oven.
Pour the egg yolks into the bowl, let the mixer run at a high speed with the whisk, let the prepared reduction run in slowly.
Prepare Hollandaise Sauce
Add the hot butter slowly by the spoonful, then faster.
The egg yolks and the butter must emulsify immediately and combine.
Season the hollandaise sauce with a little chilli or cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Let the mixer run slowly.
Take the plates out of the oven.
Place the asparagus spears with the ham on the preheated plates.
Pour the Hollandaise sauce over them and decorate with chives.
Serve quickly! Enjoy your meal!
The Hollandaise sauce can be kept warm in the oven at 90°C for about 15 minutes.
Then simply whip again…
Put a thin slice of butter on the sauce, so the sauce does not draw any skin when warm!
