Makes: 4 servings Total Time: 25 min
Category: Side Dishes Sub Category: Vegetable Side Dishes

what you need
  • 1/2 pound fresh asparagus
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
make it
Wash asparagus and trim off bottom of stems by about 2 inches.

In a large skillet, bring about 1/2 inch of water to a rapid boil. Season the water with salt and add the asparagus. Cook the asparagus for 2-3 minutes or until bright green and just tender. Drain the asparagus.

Add butter to the skillet. Stir in the zest and juice. Return the drained asparagus to the skillet and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
Notes
Variation: After the asparagus is drained, refresh immediately in a bowl of ice water. This will help the asparagus to retain the bright green color. Serve the asparagus cold with vinaigrette.

Rated  by jeffmartin1959 on 1/6/2010 Its weird, but of all my recipes, my wife loves this one the most. My daughter described it as tasting "fresh". I've made this recipe many times
