This was an impromptu dish I made one evening. This dish came about because I foundat our near-by gourmet grocery store for the first time early in the day. (I was glad to find them in such a convenient location. Previously we had to go to another grocery store that was a bit far-away). Since I already had blanched green pencil asparagus prepared, I came up with this dish.
I poached the egg and it had a runny yolk (I could make it runny because I was using the Davidson’s pasteurized eggs I just got).
Before eating, we just broke the yolk and used it as a sauce. I also served freshly baked baguette to mop up the yolk.
I first sauteed the blanched tops of the green pencil asparagus in butter seasoned with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile I poached the pasteurized eggs.
I placed the asparagus in a small bowl and put the poached egg on top. I sprinkled a bit of Kosher salt on the top. This was a very nice dish,are always a good combination.
