This meal is quick to make and very light and healthy, makes for a great summertime dinner that you can have on the table in 30 Min's, so a great after work recipe. I used veal scallops and did 4 per person, about 200g in weight for each person. I know this cut can be quite expensive so feel free to make this with veal cutlets of similar weight, taste just as good but kinder on the wallet. I used the scallops, as hubby had just come home from a business trip and wanted a light meal as he is never to hungry after a long flight, but I also wanted something a little more special hence the cut.
- 800 g veal scallops, I allow for 4 scallops per person

- 650 -700 g asparagus spears, trimmed (thin stalked)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil

- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped
