step-by-step directions
  • Preheat a grillpan to medium-high heat.
  • Toss the asparagus in 3 tablespoons olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill for about 3 minutes per side, the asparagus should be bright green and charred in spots.
  • In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the butter and gently fry the eggs until just set, about 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Divide the asparagus among the plates, and top each with an egg. Shave Parmigiano-Reggiano on each serving. Grate the zest over the plates and squeeze lemon juice over each serving. Season with salt and coarsely ground black pepper.
