For the Asparagus:
3 bunches of asparagus, ends snapped off
A drizzle Olivado Extra Virgin Macadamia Nut Oil
A pinch Mrs Rogers Himalayan Pink Salt
A pinch Mrs Rogers Black Peppercorns, ground

For the Dressing:
2 tsp Bush Airborne Honey, melted
Juice of a lemon
1 tsp Lee Kum Kee Minced Garlic
¼ cup Olivado Extra Virgin Macadamia Nut Oil
¼ cup Alison’s Pantry Hemp Seeds
A pinch of salt & pepper

For the Crumb:
½ cup Alison’s Pantry Natural Macadamia Nuts, roughly chopped
2 slices a day old bread, blitzed into rough crumbs
A handful Superb Herb Parsley, roughly chopped
A handful Superb Herb Oregano, roughly chopped
A handful of Mainland Grated Parmesan
Zest of a lemon
A pinch of salt & pepper


  1. In a fry pan over a high heat, toast the bread crumbs, hemp seeds, garlic, lemon zest & macadamia nuts in a generous drizzle of macadamia oil until golden and crunchy. Season with salt & pepper. Let cool.
  2. In a bowl combine the golden crunchy crumbs, parmesan, and herbs.
  3. In a separate bowl combine lemon juice, macadamia nut oil, honey, salt & pepper
  4. Heat the BBQ to high.
  5. Brush the Asparagus with oil, sprinkle salt and pepper and BBQ until charred all over, making sure they still have a bite (nothing worse than overcooking your asparagus!). Take off the heat and spread out on a beautiful platter.
  6. Drizzle the asparagus with the dressing and sprinkle with the macadamia crumb.
  7. Devour while crunchy and hot!
