Asparagus with Orange and Lemon Sauce - Espárragos con Salsa de Naranja y Limón

In Spain, quality white or green asparagus is usually eaten at room temperature, on its own, with olive oil or a sauce such as mayonnaise or vinaigrette. Here we have chosen a variation with the juice of citrus fruits to give added sparkle and fruitiness.

Makes 4 servings.

Chop the hard-boiled egg yolks and mix with the raw egg yolk. Add the orange and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Gradually add the olive oil, beating as if for mayonnaise. Check the seasoning. Beat the egg white until stiff and add to the sauce. Arrange the well-drained asparagus on a serving dish, pour over the sauce and decorate with slices of orange and lemon.
