Blackened Leeks With Asparagus and Boiled Eggs


4 large eggs

4 medium leeks, white and pale-green parts only, halved lengthwise

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 bunch asparagus, trimmed

Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon whole grain mustard

Flaky sea salt


Step 1  Gently lower eggs into a medium pot of boiling water; cook 6 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water and let cool.

Step 2  Heat a dry large cast-iron skillet over medium-high until smoking hot. Cook leeks, cut side down, pressing to ensure contact with skillet, until blackened, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; add butter and rotate skillet to evenly coat leeks. Transfer leeks to a platter with a slotted spoon.

Step 3  Add asparagus to skillet, season with kosher salt and pepper, and cook, tossing occasionally, until bright green and crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat, add lemon juice and mustard, and toss asparagus to coat. Transfer to platter with leeks and spoon sauce over.

Step 4  Peel eggs, halve, and place on top of vegetables. Top with sea salt.
