So, my brother called while I was on the way to the farmers market and asked if I thought he could use red snapper in a recipe that called for skate. The conversation wandered to the Bittman recipe for broiled asparagus with Parmesan and bread crumbs that he was going to make to go with it. Well, I went straight to Zuckerman’s and bought a beautiful bunch of fat purple asparagus.
I came home and put together a batch of brownies to take to work tomorrow and made a quick dinner. Riffing on the asparagus recipe I added a couple of quick soft-yolked eggs and I was good to go.
