  • 1 lb asparagus spears
  • 5 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup almonds sliced

  • Wash the asparagus spears, and break off the woody sections at the bottoms / ends.
  • Bring a pot of water (big enough to hold and cover the asparagus) to a boil over high heat on the stove.
  • Prepare a bowl of ice water big enough for the asparagus and set aside.
  • Place the asparagus into the boiling water, and cook for 2-3 minutes until they are still crisp but slightly tender.
  • Immediately place the asparagus into the bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Place the asparagus into the butter, and saute for 1-2 minutes.
  • Squeeze in the juice from the lemon evenly over the asparagus.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
