OK, This is a recipe that has been taken from another recipe and changed to use asparagus, and credit for the idea must go to kelbel, Brussels Sprouts With Bacon, Pistachios and Balsamic Vinegar. I hope you enjoy this!

I made this slightly different to the recipe-I left my asparagus whole, pan fried it tender crsip, added the vinegar and reduced it then sprinkled over the pistachios and heated them through. I served the asparagus with crumbled (cooked) prosciutto over it and omitted the poppy seeds. Delicious! Our visitors arrived with a screaming baby so thoughts of taking photos went out the window!
