I usually boil my asparagus, or roast it, or possibly, grill it. However, I don't think I ever tried just frying it. What took me so long? This was super simple, and extremely tasty. Just heat some butter, and fry on fairly high temperature, shaking the pan every so often. It took about five minutes.
And do note my new pretty frying pan! It's white! On the inside! I'm pretty excited about this, it makes it really easy to see the level of done-ness, and browning butter is obviously much easier than in a dark pan. We'll see how long it lasts, but so far, I'm happy. (This is from Ica Selection, and I was sent this one to try out.)
