I never liked Asparagus growing up. It was always overcooked. I talked with a friend who is a chef and he gave me some helpful tips. Ever since I created this recipe with my own seasonings, I love it. I hope you enjoy it as well.

How to Make Pan Seared Asparagus


  1. Blanche the asparagus in salted rapidly boiling water for 1 minute, and then shock them in an ice bath to stop the cooking. Then when ready to serve sauté them quickly in a screaming hot sauté pan with half a tablespoon each of extra virgin olive oil & butter, freshly chopped thyme, rosemary, garlic, sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper to taste!
