One bunch of asparagus, trimmed

100g smoked salmon or double-smoked ham

  1. Bring water to a boil in a pan. Add asparagus to the boiling water and cook it for 2 minutes, until it is bright green and crisp. Drain
  2. Bring a medium-sized saucepan of water up to a boil. When bubbles have subsided, reduce heat and stir the water with a spoon until a whirlpool is formed. Pour an egg into a small dish and slide it gently into the vortex. Cook for three minutes or until the white is done. Transfer the egg onto a plate using a slotted teaspoon. Repeat with the remaining eggs.
  3. Wrap asparagus spears in salmon or ham. Toast the bread and place it on a serving plate. Top with eggs. Serve with vegetable dippers and season with salt and pepper.
