Spargel with hollandaise

Spargel with hollandaise

Im a sucker for Spagel (white asparagus) with hollandais. It’s a seasonal treat, that embodies springtime. They are quite expensive, so make sure you test them for freshness by pinching the ends!


  • Fresh Spargel, (white asparagus)
  • 200 grams of Butter
  • 3 Egg yolks
  • Lemon juice
  • Lemon thyme
  • Speck (cured ham)

Prepare the spagel by peeling them and cutting of the ends. Cook in lightly salted water with a pinch of sugar, for about 7 minutes (i like my spagel with a bit of bite!)

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk the egg yolk over a bain-marie,  while slowly adding the melted butter. Season with lemon juice, lemon thyme, salt and pepper.

Serve with speck on the side..
