Perfect Sauteed Garlic Asparagus
In less than ten minutes, you can make the most delicious Perfect Sauteed Garlic Asparagus. It is the easiest and tastiest spring vegetable side dish.
Servings 4 servings
- 1 pound fresh asparagus
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 cloves garlic minced or roughly chopped (personal preference)
Give your asparagus a fresh cut and trim off the bottoms. Boil a large pot of salted water. Blanch the asparagus by boiling in salted water for 1 minute, then transfer asparagus spears to large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
In large heavy bottom pan, heat butter over medium high heat. Once butter is melted, add garlic and cook just until it turns golden brown; this only takes a couple of minutes. Remove asparagus from ice water and shake off any excess water. Add to hot garlic butter and sauté until spears are evenly coated in garlic butter and warmed through, about 3-4 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper and/or a squeeze of fresh lemon.
