Asparagus and lemon

This recipe works well with thicker stalks of asparagus and serves two. Get them as fresh as possible. The lemon flavor enriches the dish. I finish up in the microwave to get to the tenderness we enjoy.


Asparagus, 8 stalks

Lemon, 1, cut in half

Olive oil, 1 T


Soak the asparagus to remove any dirt. Snap off the bottom end. Drain well on paper towel or a cotton kitchen towel. Heat the olive oil in a broad bottom pan at medium-low heat. Snap each asparagus stalk in two. Add to pan. Cut lemon into quarters. Squeeze lemon juice over asparagus. It will splatter, so take care...
