Ingredients
  

  • 32 spears asparagus or 1 bunch
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 lemon juiced and zested
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • parmigiano reggiano for garnish optional
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon light colored vinegar

Instructions
 

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add vinegar and stir in a circle to cause a votex.
  • Separately, heat the oil in a large sauté pan on medium heat. Add the minced garlic, lemon juice and zest and asparagus spears. Sauté and use tongs to move the asparagus around until they are cooked through, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  • Once the pot of water has come to a boil, reduce the heat to low and ensure that no bubbles are breaking the surface. Add each egg to a ramekin, then gently add to the pot of water. Cook each egg for 3 minutes. Then remove the egg with a slotted spoon and dab and excess water on a paper towel.
  • To assemble, add a few asparagus spears to a plate, top with a slice of prosciutto, add a poached egg, season with salt and pepper and garnish with freshly grated parmigiano reggiano.
