1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, just enough to coat asparagus
Sea salt, to taste
For the Salad
30g mache (lamb’s lettuce)
20g pea shoots
1 handful of parsley leaves or mixed herbs
100g mixed cherry red and golden tomatoes, halved
½ conference pears, peeled and sliced thinly into ½ cm pieces
2 Tbsp almond flakes, toasted
2 Tbsp edamame beans, blanched and skin removed
40g aged parmesan, finely grated
2 rashers of prosciutto ham
1 Tbsp pomegranate seeds
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
First make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the miso, vinegar, honey, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, lime juice, and sesame seeds. Season with black pepper to taste and set aside.
Place a griddle pan over medium high heat. In the meantime, toss the asparagus with olive oil to coat and sprinkle with sea salt generously on a tray or plate. Place the asparagus on the hot griddle pan in a single layer. Cook 2-3 minutes, turning the spears as necessary. Cook until slightly charred and tender.
Place the salad leaves, pea shoots, and parsley (or any mixed herbs) in a large bowl. drizzle some of the dressing over and toss lightly to coat.
Divide the salad between two places and top with tomatoes, pears, almond flakes, edamame beans, asparagus, and prosciutto ham. Scatter over parmesan and pomegranate seeds. Drizzle more dressing on top, if you like, and serve immediately.
