Buttered Asparagus with Scrambled Eggs and Smoked Salmon
Smoked Salmon, pre-sliced
4 Each Sticks of Butter
8 Each Eggs
3 Oz All Purpose Flour
1 Bag Panko Breadcrumbs
1 L Canola Oil, for frying 370f
2 Fl Oz Heavy Cream
Kosher Salt and Pepper, to taste
Freeze the butter, set up three bowls, one each for flour, egg (use 2 eggs) and breadcrumbs. Dip the butter into the flour, then egg and lastly the breadcrumbs, repeat. Place back into the freezer for 1 hour. Place each piece of butter into the hot oil and fry until light brown. Remove and immediately cut the top off the box, remove the slightly melted butter and place bread box on a paper towel to drain.
I like the "standard" sized asparagus a little thicker than a pencil. With standard asparagus you should not need to peel it.
Cut the asparagus to 4 inches long. Cook the asparagus by plunging it into heavily salted boiling water for about 1 min, remove and toss with melted butter, salt and pepper.
Use the additional 6 eggs. I like to cook my eggs on the soft side, and finish with a little cream for added richness. It helps to use a non stick pan.
Place scrambled eggs into the bread box and serve the asparagus and smoked salmon around it.
