  • Preheat oven to 325F (160C). Generously butter a 10-inch (25-cm) pie plate. Snap tough ends off asparagus. Slice into 1-inch (2.5-cm) pieces or, if thick, into 1/2-inch (1-cm) pieces. Add to a pot of boiling water. Cook for just 2 minutes. Immediately drain and rinse with cold water. Pat very dry. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with sour cream, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir in asparagus, onions and dill. Pour into pie plate and bake in centre of 325F (160C) oven for 15 minutes. Then stir eggs, scraping set eggs away from sides of pie plate and into centre. Sprinkle salmon overtop and stir until evenly distributed. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Continue to bake just until eggs are barely set, about 20 more minutes. Turn off oven and leave in oven for 5 more minutes. Serve immediately with a green salad.
