1. Trim the woody stalks off the asparagus.

2. Fill a tall asparagus pan with water and bring to the boil.

3. Place the asparagus, stalk end down, into the pan and simmer for 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus spears.

4. The tips of the asparagus must only be submerged for the final 2 minutes of cooking, otherwise they will overcook and become slimy.

5. Drain. Pre-heat the grill. Place the asparagus in a gratin dish and sprinkle over the lemon juice.

6. Grate 50g (2oz) parmesan cheese on the coarse holes of a cheese grater, and gently stir through the asparagus.

7. Slice the remaining parmesan cheese into fine curls on the blade of a standard cheese grater.

8. Scatter over the asparagus and sprinkle with black pepper.

9. Grill for 4-5 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown.

10. Serve immediately with more freshly ground black pepper.
