White Asparagus with Salmon, Ham, Eggs, New Potatoes and Hollandaise Sauce

During period April - June our favorite ingredient is : white asparagus. The mild and delicate flavor together with all the nutritious benefits make the white asparagus a great choice for your meal. Asparagus is rich in antioxidants and a good source of B vitamins and copper. Below I will present you a delicious dutch recipe on how to prepare and enjoy your white asparagus. Ideally it is paired with some good white wine - recommended to choose from GrĂ¼ner Veltliner, dry Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc.

Ingredients (for 2 persons) :

Time :


  1. Season the salmon with salt, pepper. Drizzle a bit of lemon juice and olive oil and add it in the preheated oven to 200 degrees for 20 minutes.
  2. Wash and cook the potatoes in salted water for 15-20 minutes or until they are nicely tender. Set aside, season with salt & pepper and cover so that they remain warm.
  3. Boil the eggs until they are well done - for approx. 10 minutes. Peel and set aside.
  4. Cook the asparagus in 1 liter of water with the cube of bouillon for 8 to 10 minutes or until a knife inserted in one stalk comes out smoothly. Set aside.
  5. Prepare the Hollandaise Sauce as per the instructions from the pack.
  6. Once all the ingredients are cooked you may either serve them on the table and everyone can choose what they like or prepare a platter like in the picture below. Drizzle generously warm hollandaise sauce over your asparagus and potatoes.

Eet Smakelijk! Enjoy your meal!

Advice : keep the water where the asparagus was boiled + 1-2 pieces of asparagus and prepare a nice soup. See the recipe & steps in my blog!
