Asparagus and Duck Egg

Asparagus and Duck Egg

This is the perfect weekend brunch dish and a great way to welcome the new asparagus season!

Butter poached asparagus is paired with fried duck egg and air-dried ham and seasoned with a little truffle salt. Go easy on the truffle salt as it can easily overpower and ensure your duck egg is super crisp on the bottom for a great contrast of texture.
