Wild Asparagus

Asparagus most often grow as wild plants that peek out as early as early spring.  They can be found in meadows and stone heaps, along bushy hedges and forest paths as late as June.

In order to prepare them you must first snap them into smaller pieces by hand up until the place where the stem becomes hard.  Young asparagus stems are sweet tasting and can be prepared baked, boiled, sautéed or simply as a salad. The most famous and to many the most delicious specialty is an asparagus omelette or fritaja prepared with eggs and olive oil. 

Restaurants and taverns in Poreč will happily prepare this simple dish for you, and it makes a great morning brunch, afternoon lunch or in the evening while you reminisce by the warm embers of the fireside about the day's events in Poreč.
