This asparagus went very well with your Halibut with fresh tomato sauce Dancer^!!The colours of both recipes together made a great presentation. Wonderful combination, the almonds, butter and asparagus. Asparagus is our favourite veggie and we will be serving it often this way, especially for guests. Thanks for sharing!!

A quick and simple recipe with nice presentation. The asparagus came out very tender and flavorful. The almonds add a nice touch.

I loved the buttered almonds with this asparagus. I reduced the amount of butter to only 2 tablespoons and lightly steamed my asparagus before adding to the saute pan just long enough to coat with the crunchy almonds and butter. This was great with roasted chicken and Roasted Fingerling Potatoes.

I took a chance by using frozen asparagus spears that were carefully defrosted. I was afraid of the aspargus being waterlogged. Unfortunately I have a difficult time finding high quality fresh asparagus in town. I opted to roast instead of sauteing the asparagus. Due to the fact I chose to roast the vegetables, I used half butter and half olive oil to avoid burning the asparagus. Garnished the cooked asparagus with lemon slices. We loved the almonds with the asparagus-a good match!! Freshly ground pepper is definitely a requiremnet. Thanks, Dancer! cg ;)
