asparagus with scallops and nduja

my first british asparagus of the year! i wasn’t expecting to see asparagus in the shops just yet but when i spotted it i could resist, despite the crazy price.

this meal was a decadent moment – david is not a fan of scallops and quickly gets bored of asparagus (i like to try and eat it most days when its in season) so this was the perfect choice when i had a quiet evening home alone.

i fried a nub of nduja (a soft spicy italian salami, v similar to a picante chorizo in flavour - you could use chorizo or pancetta in its place) in a little olive oil, added the scallops and after a minute on each side squeezed in the juice of a lemon. i poured all of this over the cooked asparagus and added some fresh pesto to finish things off. add a glass of italian rose wine and i had a lovely light but indulgent supper.
