Coconut meat (1 slice per wrap)
Fresh asparagus (3 tips per wrap)
Soy sauce to taste
Salt & Pepper to taste
Extra virgin olive oil to taste
STEP 1) Preheat the oven at 200° C while leaving the coconut meat to marinate in soy sauce, salt and pepper.
STEP 2) Chop the asparagus into 2/3 pieces and leave them aside.
STEP 3) Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a small pan for a couple of minutes then gently fry the coconut slices to keep the flavour. Once they turn golden and slightly firmer, take them off the pan and place them on a plate.
STEP 4) Get your hands dirty! Wrap 3 asparagus pieces with one coconut slice and place them on a cooking sheet laid on a baking tray. Lightly oil the sheet to ensure that the coconut meat doesn’t stick. Season with salt, pepper and coriander to taste and put them in the oven.
STEP 5) Bake for 20 minutes until they get a crispy and firm look.
STEP 6) EnjoyEat!
