Garlic Butter Asparagus


Prep Time

3 minutes

Prep Notes

Break the woody ends off asparagus ends.

Cooking Time

5 minutes

Yields

2-3 servings

Ingredients

10 oz asparagus

2 T. melted grass fed butter (I like Kerrygold)

3 cloves garlic, minced

Salt, to taste

Ground black pepper to taste

lemon juice, optional

Directions

Heat skillet on med. heat and add the melted butter. Sauté the garlic until slightly browned before adding the asparagus. Toss with a spatula to combine well with the garlic.

Add salt and pepper, to taste. Add a squeeze or two of lemon juice, if using. Once the asparagus becomes tender and just cooked, remove from and serve immediately.

If you want to save calories you can sauté in olive oil. If you want to maintain the butter flavor use butter flavored olive from "Heavenly Oils", "Olive Tree" or other specialty olive oil and vinegar shops.

Notes

This easy and quick Buttered Garlic Asparagus is pictured with Garlic Parmesan Baked Halibut and placed on a bed of Quinoa with Kale, Olive Oil and Sea Salt. You can find the recipe for the Baked Halibut in the "Fish" category of my recipe section. The Quinoa I purchased at Costco in the Frozen Food section is totally organic and comes with 5 individual 10 oz packages that can be steamed in the Micro-Wave for  3 1/2 minutes. Or you can just steam some brown or wild rice.
