Nutritional values

The combination of asparagus and herbs not only makes a great culinary and visual impression, together, they bring a concentrated load of vitamins. In addition, this dish contains plenty of potassium, which stimulates kidney activity, having a gently draining effect. Spring vegetables are also rich in folic acid, which promotes cell renewal and blood formation.

For a more well rounded meal, then crown the grilled asparagus with 50 grams of cooked deep-sea shrimp or crayfish tails per serving.
