Hopefully Spring will be arriving soon and to remind us all of Spring, nothing can be better than some beautiful green asparagus. Normally when I make asparagus I would just steam them or roast them in the oven. When I saw this recipe on For the Love of Cooking , it sounded like a fabulous flavor combination. I never heard of anyone putting lime on their asparagus before but I was definitely willing to try it and since Pam said it tasted so delicious, I made them. The flavors are really wonderful and do go quite well together. So if you want a new and delicious flavor combination, give this recipe a try.
|Lime Asparagus|| |
- 1 large bunch of thin asparagus, bottom ends removed
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp. butter
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- In a large nonstick sauté pan heat up the oil and the butter over medium low heat. Add the asparagus, cover and cook for about 3 or 4 minutes until crisp tender. Take off the cover and add the garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper and cook for another minute or two. Stir to combine. Serve with more lime, if desired. Enjoy!
