Serves: 4

Ingredients 

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed
  • ⅓ cup good-quality mayonnaise
  • 3 tsp sriracha chilli sauce
  • Smoked paprika, for sprinkling
  • ½ bunch watercress, leaves picked
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced

Dill Mustard Vinaigrette

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp raw sugar
  • 1 tbsp dill, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method 

  1. Hard-boil the eggs. Drain and refresh in iced water, then peel and halve lengthways.
  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Whisk together all the ingredients in a jug. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bring a frypan of water to the boil, add asparagus and cook for 2-3 minutes, until tender yet still crisp. Drain and plunge into a bowl of iced water to stop it overcooking. Drain. Cut diagonally into 5cm lengths.
  4. Use a teaspoon to scoop out egg yolks and place them in a bowl. Add mayonnaise and sriracha, then mash with a fork until smooth. Place egg white halves on a plate.
  5. Spoon egg yolk mix into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm fluted nozzle, then pipe into each egg white (or use a zip-lock bag with the corner cut off). Sprinkle with paprika.
  6. Combine watercress, asparagus, celery and cucumber in a bowl. Transfer to a serving platter and place devilled eggs on top. Drizzle with vinaigrette and serve.
