Ingredients

    fresh asparagus
  • 1/4 lb
    butter

How to Make Fresh Asparagus with Lemon Butter Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Select fresh asparagus for crispness and young tender pencil sized stalks are ideal.
  2. Wash asparagus under cold running water.
  3. Snap off the lower end of each stalk with your fingers, letting the stalk break where it wants to.
  4. This will leave only the tender portion of the asparagus; young tender stalks can be cooked in a steamer for 5-7 minutes, the more mature stalks for 7-10 minutes.
  5. DO NOT OVERCOOK asparagus--it will lose flavor and nutrients if overcooked.
  6. Prior to cooking the asparagus, prepare the lemon butter sauce.
  7. This is enough sauce for 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of asparagus.
  8. Combine the butter, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper sauce in a small saucepan and heat until hot--DO NOT BOIL.
  9. Pour the heated sauce over the cooked asparagus and serve.
