Roasted Asparagus with Dill & Lemon Fresh Herb Sea salt Seasoning, capers and toasted Almonds

Roasted seasonal asparagus with Dill & Lemon Fresh Herb Salt, capers and toasted Almonds - makes the perfect side for any Spring time dish - especially Roast spring lamb.  

Preheat oven to 200c Fan.  Mix aparagus with 1 tbs of olive oil and dill & lemon fresh herb sea salt and a good grind of pepper.  Arrange on a large parchment lined baking tray and roast for 8-12 minutes depending on the thickness.

Put butter into a small pan and place on medium heat.  Once melted, add the almonds and toast for 1-2 minutes until golden brown (careful not to burn as they do turn quickly).  Poor this over the cooked asparagus.

Add remaining 2 tbs of oil in the pan add capers and fry for 1-2 minutes stirring continuously until they have opened up and become a little crispy.  Remove with a slotted spoon and sprinkle over the asparagus.  

HOW DELICIOUS DOES THAT SOUND!!!  TRIED, TESTED AND RECOMMENDED!

All of these fresh ingredients are available this Saturday at Creake Abbey Farmers Market - or if you can't get there then you can shop online.
