I love things that are quick to make but taste really good - lots of return from little effort. This is a great example of that. A really tasty snack, and good as a canape to serve with a glass of champagne.
Cook some asparagus on a griddle pan or in a dry non stick frying pan until slightly charred and softened. Serve with some mayonnaise - home made if there is time, but out of a jar is fine and definitely quicker - with a bit of lemon juice and some freshly ground black pepper stirred in. Lovely.
