Asparagus Poached in Red Wine with Cilantro Recipes

Ingredients :

1/2 cup (4 fl oz / 125ml) olive oil

1/2 cup (4 fl oz / 125ml) red wine

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tsp sugar

1 tbsp coriander seeds, cracked

1 tsp cracked black pepper

13 oz (400g) asparagus, stalks trimmed (How to Prepare Asparagus)

8 wedges Turkish bread, or any preferred, thickly sliced bread

2 tbsp olive oil, for brushing

cilantro (coriander) leaves, for garnish

Method :

Preheat oven to 225F (110C / Gas 1/4). Place olive oil, wine, vinegar, sugar, coriander seeds and pepper in a shallow saucepan large enough to hold asparagus. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat to low. When mixture is at a steady simmer, add asparagus and cook until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove asparagus from pan, place in an ovenproof baking dish and keep warm in oven.

Continue to simmer remaining cooking liquid until it has reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Remove asparagus from oven and pour liquid over asparagus.

Preheat a broiler (grill). Brush both sides of bread with olive oil. Broil (grill) until golden, 1-2 minutes per side.

Serve asparagus at room temperature sprinkled with fresh cilantro leaves. Accompany with grilled bread.
