- Remove the asparagus from the water and drain on a towel.
- Mash the eggs with a fork in a small bowl.
- Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
- Arrange the asparagus on a serving platter or individual plates and spoon the egg mixture on top, leaving the ends of the asparagus uncovered.

Try a grating of fresh nutmeg for additional flavour.
