  • Take a pair of scissors and cut the tomatoes off the vine leaving a little bit of the stork on for presentation then coast with olive and season.

On the grill

  • Place your tomatoes on a grill tray and cook on a medium indirect heat for 10 minutes.
  • Dress your asparagus with olive oil and season, then pre-heat the griddle to a medium high heat, and lay the asparagus on the griddle adding 2 tablespoons of cold water onto the griddle to create steam.
  • After 2 minutes turn your asparagus and then cook them for further 2 minutes.
  • Place your asparagus to one side of the griddle and fry off your eggs to your liking using a little oil on the griddle.
  • Plate up your food by putting the remaining watercress into the centre of the plate and lay one fried egg on top, your asparagus gets positioned in a cross over your egg and the dressing and tomatoes dotted around.
