Ingredients:

8 rice paper rounds
2 mangoes, cut into strips
1 C Markon First Crop Strawberries, sliced
2 kiwifruit, peeled & sliced
1 C dragonfruit (pitaya), sliced
1/4 C Markon First Crop Mint
2 cups Thai sticky rice, cooked

Instructions:

Fill a large bowl with warm water. Arrange your mis en place so all ingredients are readily accessible. One at a time, dip a rice paper round in the warm water and wait until it softens completely (approximately one minute). Remove and smooth on a cutting board. In the center of the round, place 1/8 the rice topped by equal portions of fruit and mint. Fold bottom ends inward, then roll like a burrito until filling is completely sealed. Repeat for remaining seven rolls.
Serve with your choice of dipping sauces such as honey-lime or spicy peanut.

Ingredients:

1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish

Instructions:

Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
