Method:

Salsa... This is not really a sauce, more like a warm, crunchy, syrupy, spicy marmalade.

  • Melt butter in pan and fry onions gently to caramelize (I added suger to speed up the process).
  • After a couple of mins, add the chopped ginger.
  • Gently fry for further 5 mins then add orange peel, lemon juice and sugar.
  • Continue to cook for further 6/7 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, dry fry the walnuts for a couple of minutes then break into pieces.
  • 1 minute before serving, add the walnuts.
  • Chop tough ends off of the asparagus.
  • Wash & dry the 'gus.
  • Place on a row of long skewers on a roasting dish (keeps them from burning on one side), brush with olive oil and place in an oven @ 180° for 6/7 mins.
  • Serve salsa on top of a slice/2 of orange (peel cut off) on end of 'gus.
  • First time I tried this so wide open for modification. G'luck :-)
