Asparagus Milanese at Tarry Lodge

Asparagus Milanese


Serves 2 people

For the Asparagus

1 ounce speck vinaigrette (see below)

5-7 spears of asparagus, blanched

1 large egg

1 small chunk Parmigiano-Reggiano

1 small black summer truffle


For the Speck Vinaigrette

6 slices speck, thinly sliced

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

1 tablespoon whole grain mustard

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 cup extra virgin olive oil

Rendered speck fat

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


To make the speck vinaigrette, cut speck in half lengthwise and julienne.


In a small non-stick sauté pan over medium-high heat, add a small amount of olive oil. Cook the speck until crispy and the fat has rendered.


In a medium bowl, add mustard and red wine vinegar and whisk together. Slowly add olive oil and continue to whisk to emulsify.


Stir in rendered speck. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.


In the same non-stick sauté pan, heat a tablespoon of olive oil over high heat. Add the asparagus and toss in the oil over high heat until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Set aside.


In the same non-stick pan, crack the egg and fry sunny-side up, taking care to keep the yolks intact. Cook the eggs until the whites are firm, but the yolk is still runny.


Plate the sautéed asparagus and cover the spears with two tablespoons of the speck vinaigrette.


Plate the fried egg over the cut end of the asparagus spears.


Grate Parmigiano-Reggiano over the asparagus and egg.


Shave black summer truffles over the egg. Serve immediately
