Asparagus Bacon Roll

30 baby asparagus
5 slices of streaky bacon
2 tsp freshly grounded black pepper

  • Trim the asparagus and blanch it in salted boiled water for 2 or 3 mins. Don't over blanch the asparagus as it will cook slightly more with the bacon.
  • Divide the asparagus into 5 bundles and roll the bacon slices over each bundle so as to tightly wrap it.
  • Heat a non stick pan on low flame and add the asparagus rolls to the pan. Remember not to add any oil to the pan as bacon will release some fat during cooking.
  • Sprinkle the freshly ground pepper on the rolls and brown them evenly on all sides.
  • It can be served on its own as an appetizer or as a side dish to a meal.
