DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the asparagus by removing the "wooden" part of the stalk.
  • Do this by gently bending the spear until it breaks of its own accord.
  • This will remove the less edible portion.
  • Cut the stalks to equal length for formal presentation.
  • Steam asparagus just past al dente, drain and plate.
  • Squeeze the juice from the Italian blood orange.
  • Slowly mix the juice into the mayonnaise to avoid lumping.
  • For extra color and flavor some of the minced zest may be scattered over the spears.
  • Plate the spears on an oblong platter with the tips all facing in one direction.
  • Run a swath of the seasoned mayonnaise down the center of the asparagus.
  • Sprinkle zest over the plate and serve.
