Ingredients

  • 24

    thin asparagus spears

  • 1

    lemon

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • Olive oil

  • Kosher salt

Directions

Wash asparagus and line them up on a cutting board with the tops even. Cut off tough bottom ends. Bring a skillet or oval casserole filled half full with salted water to boil. Dump in asparagus all at once. When water returns to the boil, cook asparagus until crisp-tender, about 1 to 3 minutes, depending on size. Drain. Return asparagus to hot pan, squeeze lemon juice over top. Add butter and a drizzle of olive oil, tossing to coat. Add kosher salt, to taste. Serve immediately.
