Delicious and simple. This dish started out as something quite different to this recipe, but when I teamed the radish and butter with the asparagus and bacon, I just had to write it down.


  • 12 large asparagus spears
  • 12 rashers smoked streaky bacon
  • 12 radishes, washed
  • 80 g(2 ½ oz) unsalted butter
  • coarse sea salt


Snap asparagus to remove woody stems or peel them. Lay a bacon rasher on a board and place an asparagus spear on top. Roll up tightly, then do the same to remainder. Place on barbecue in a moderately hot place, or in a hot skillet pan, and turn over once bacon is cooked on one side, being careful not to let it catch fire as the fat drips onto the coals. Serve on a plate with radishes, a blob of butter and some salt.
