The combination of fresh asparagus and crunchy, salty cashews is a winner. As a side vegetable it goes well with simple grilled fish, pork, and poultry. Or, I've just sauteed some cubed, boneless chicken breasts to the skillet before adding the asparagus. It's delicious either way.
- Cut off the tough ends of the asparagus, and then slice diagonally into 2-3 pieces.
- Heat the oil together in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat.
- Add the ginger and stir fry for 1 minute.
- Add the asparagus and stir fry until tender but still a tiny bit crisp, 4-5 minutes. Stir in the cashews and soy sauce.
- Serve immediately.
