Spring is very Close

Spring time! the awaking of dormant plants. I look forward to this time when young plant shoots begin to grow in the warm and longer daylight of the new season. Classic spring foods such as asparagus, fava beans, artichokes and peas will begin to flood the local markets. I can't wait to start cooking all of these foods. Today I saw a display of first of the season asparagus and I had to buy a bunch, my plan was to simply grill them and finish with sprinkle of sea salt and splash of extra virgin olive oil. I stuck to my plan and was rewarded with a plate of amazing asparagus, I will do other recipes soon but for now I wanted to taste nothing but pure asparagus flavor.
