So, SuperTarget had asparagus on sale for $.99/lb. Tiff and I both love the stuff, so even though it wasn’t in the greatest shape, we picked some up. I usually buy asparagus in the frozen, ready-to-steam bags, and it tastes good. However, this time it was fresh asparagus, and I couldn’t find our steamer. I thought about blanching it, and finally went meh, and tossed the asparagus in a hot skillet with some olive oil and kosher salt. The results were AWESOME. I probably cooked it for 2-3 minutes in total; not long at all.. instead of being kind of mushy, it’s nice and crisp, and the flavor just explodes out of it. I love it.
Tiff prefers the mushy stuff, unfortunately.. ah well, I can mush hers up after I cook mine. ;)
