METHOD
To make your butter in advance, soften the butter then add the crushed almonds and hazelnuts, smoked bacon, parsley and black pepper.

Roll in cling film to form a sausage shape and chill in the fridge.

Blanch asparagus for 30-45 seconds, or to your liking, refresh in cold water, drain and then pat dry with kitchen towel.

Next, gently heat some oil in a frying pan for the quail eggs.

When ready to plate, gently melt the butter in another frying pan on a medium heat, then add the asparagus and pan fry until the asparagus is up to temperature, but still has a firm bite.

Gently fry the quail eggs and place on top of the asparagus, then spoon any excess bacon and nuts around to garnish.
