I use fresh leaf salads, the more colorful the better… the varieties are: Lollo Rosso, Lollo Bianco, Radicchio, oak leaf lettuce, lamb’s lettuce…
My asparagus comes this time in boiling salt water. Cooked until firm to the bite, I marinate the asparagus later. You can use green or white fresh asparagus. I have used fresh white asparagus here. The green asparagus is usually available around the year in supermarkets, the white asparagus has season in Germany from April to June. Otherwise it is an imported product.
I give this salad as topping prawns. You can recognise raw prawns by their grey colour. I fry the prawns in a pan briefly and quickly over high heat.
One of my favourite dressings is the standard dressing of my loved ones: a mixture of white wine vinegar, orange juice, oil, mustard, honey and spices. It goes exceptionally well with my asparagus salad.
2. Recipe for Lettuce with Asparagus and Prawns
Now it’s time to start, here are the last tips before you start to cook…
You can vary the leaf salads, use green or white asparagus and always get a successful asparagus salad.
If guests come and you need something vegetarian:
The shrimps are the topping, you can also change the ingredients and use goat cheese instead of shrimps.
Have a look at the goat cheese salad, where I will show you how to refine the goat cheese 🙂
Have fun with your individual composition and good luck!
