Steamed White Asparagus with Apple Curry Relish






I found these white Asparagus at my local grocery store this past week- end,( best thing they were on sale at 99cents each) and just had to put a little Island spin to them. I found the yellow curry color added a great color contrast to the White Asparagus and the flavor of the curry complemted the Asparagus nicely. Here goes!!


Steamed white Asparagus with Apple Curry Relish

1 pound white Asparagus spears (about one bundle)
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoon chopped onions
1 garlic cloves peeled and chopped
1 golden delicious apple cut into medium dice
2 tablespoons sliced red peppers
2 tablespoon golden raisins
½ tablespoon curry powder
¼ cup coconut milk
¼ chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste


Steam Asparagus in a pot of salted boiling water for 5-10 minutes do not over cook. Remove Asparagus from pan and plunge in a cold water bath to stop cooking and set aside
Make curry relish by melting butter in a medium pan add, onions, garlic, apples, red pepper and sauté for 5 minutes. Add Curry powder and cook for another 2 minutes add the raisins, coconut milk and chicken stock simmer for another 5 minutes until relish is thickened season with salt and pepper serve with steamed white asparagus
