Roasted asparagus in beurre blanc

Method

For the asparagus

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350° F) set to fan.
  • Peel the lower half of each spear with a peeler, just before you reach the tip. 
  • Rinse the asparagus and snap off their tough ends with your hands. 
  • Add them into a baking pan along with the olive oil, the salt, the parmesan, and roast them for 15 minutes.

For the beurre blanc

  • In a saucepan over medium heat add the wine, the vinegar, the onion, the thyme, the bay leaf, and boil for 5 minutes until there are 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture left. 
  • Add the heavy cream, the salt, the pepper, and boil for 1 more minute. 
  • Lower the heat to minimum and add the butter by 2-3 cubes each time, stirring constantly. 
  • Keep adding the remaining butter, a few cubes at a time, making sure that the previous batch hasn’t melted completely when adding the next.
  • You shouldn’t increase the temperature of the mixture a lot as the sauce will split. So, you should regularly remove the saucepan from the heat to keep it a little cool. 
  • The sauce should have the consistency of a Hollandaise sauce. 
  • Remove the mixture from the heat, check the seasoning, and pass the sauce through a sieve so that there will be no onion pieces left in it.
  • Pour the sauce over the asparagus and serve.
