Pan-Fried Asparagus

Pan-Fried Asparagus created by frostingnfettuccine

I love asparagus, and if you do, then you'll love this recipe. Nothing fancy, and it's ready in minutes. Great as a side dish; I love to make a meal out of it, by adding thin slices of chicken or beef, even shrimp. I like to put grated Parmesan cheese on top.

    @timothy. yes. i have read/used the method of prepping asparagus is by (quickly) bending each asparagus stalk until it snaps, and only cooking the top portion (the bottom portion could be kept and used for an asparagus puree sauce (with additionalk spices etc), or in a soup.)

    I'm not sure that you really need a recipe for this (sauteed asparagus)? but i would suggest that the cooking times are way way too long! you want the asparagus still 'al dente' just like pasta and i would also suggest that you have the heat high enough so that you sear/brown the stalks on the outside before being overcooked. (if using garlic, the trick is to cook the asparagus without burning the garlic (which burns really easily). maybe sauteeing them separately is the best thing to do. alternatively, just add the chopped garlic or garlic mince late in the process.) if the asparagus stalks are thick, usually it is recommended that you peel the stalks (slightly) with a vegetable peeler or knife and, although garlic is classical, you could possibly try sliced/diced chilli instead (if you like chilli). And butter instead of a vegetable oil would give a better flavour, but be more careful with the heat level.

    We are asparagus lovers so we loved this simple and easy recipe! For the timing I think it just depends on how thick your asparagus spears are, I only needed about 6 mins to cook since they were thin, will try it next time with thicker ones. Flavor was delicious though!!
