  • 1 Lililup melon
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt


  • Cut off the top part of the melon and hollow it out. Cut the melon flesh into cubes.
  • Heat up a pan with extra virgin olive oil, then add the melon. Sauté it over a medium heat until golden brown. Set aside.
  • In the same pan, add another dash of extra virgin olive oil and increase the heat. Sauté the asparagus with a pinch of sea salt.
  • Once cooked, put the asparagus on a plate. Add the melon on top of it and drizzle with a dash of extra virgin olive oil.

What we love most about this grilled asparagus and Lililup melon recipe is its crunchy yet juicy texture, and its sweet and salty flavours. An amazing combination. Green asparagus is a beautiful colour and can be cooked in thousands of different ways. Why not enjoy it with our Lililup melon? An individual mini melon with a unique flavour and texture. 

Enjoy an innovative concept – it’s healthy, too.

We bring you the spectacular recipe prepared by María Saboreanda at our JimboFresh stand for the Fruit Attraction 2019 fair. An innovative option and a different way to enjoy a melon salad.
