  • Pan fry the asparagus for 3-4 minutes to get a little colour, then reserve.
  • Pre heat the oven to 190C gas 5.
  • Roll out the puff pastry nice and thin into 2 x 35cm x 15cm strips.
  • Dock the pastry, but leave a 3cm edge all around un docked.
  • Place on a baking tray then spread a thin layer of mayo over the docked area.
  • Add the rocket next, keeping on the mayo.
  • Next, lay the asparagus neatly together on top of the mayo and rocket, making sure the are inside the 3cm edge.
