Dressing

1
Have ready a pot of well-salted boiling water and warm four serving plates. Trim the asparagus and peel if desired

To make the dressing, finely chop the shallots and put them in a bowl with the vinegar. Add the olive oil in a fine stream, then season with salt and pepper
3
Boil the asparagus for 2—3 minutes, then use a pair of tongs to remove the spears to a tray so you can arrange them in a line

Place the asparagus on the serving plates and spoon over some of the dressing. Use a potato peeler to cut several thin strips of Parmesan and throw them over each plate. Serve at once
