Ingredients
  • 3 Free Range Eggs
  • sunflower oil for frying
  • 4 tbsp Plain Flour
  • 50 g Panko breadcrumbs
  • 200 g Australian Asparagus woody ends snapped off
DRESSING
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar plus a splash more
  • 2 tbsp ight soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp olive
  • 1 tsp Sugar
Instructions
  1. Fill a wide saucepan 1/2 full with water, add a splash of rice vinegar over a medium heat until gently and steadily simmering. Swirl the water to make a whirlpool, crack an egg into a small cup, then tip into the centre of the pan as the whirlpool subsides. Poach gently for 2 minutes, until the white is set enough to lift out carefully and transfer to a bowl of ice cold water. Repeat with a second egg.
  2. Whisk the dressing ingredients and set aside.
  3. Heat 6 - 8cm of sunflower oil in a saucepan until it reaches 190C or use a deep fryer. Put a pan of water on to boil, too, then tip the flour and breadcrumbs onto separate plates. Beat the third egg in a shallow bowl.
  4. Carefully lift the cold poached eggs from the water and pat dry with kitchen paper. Gently coat in flour, followed by the beaten egg, followed by breadcrumbs – just like you would a schnitzel. Lower into the hot oil and fry just until the crumbs are golden brown and crisp – around 30 seconds or so. Flip the eggs if you need, so both sides are evenly crisp. Lift onto more kitchen paper, and drop the asparagus into the boiling water for 1.5 minutes until just tender.
  5. Drain the asparagus, divide between 2 plates, and top each with a crumbed egg. Drizzle over the dressing and serve immediately.
