A touch of curry-infused butter dresses sauteed asparagus. This quick and delicious side dish would be just as welcome with a grilled cheese sandwich as it would with broiled salmon.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Combine butter, curry powder, lemon juice and salt in a small bowl.

    Advertisement
  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add asparagus and cook, stirring, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir the curry butter into the asparagus; toss to coat.

Tips

Tip: Check the ingredient label on your brand of curry powder: if it has added salt (as some do), you may omit the salt in the recipe or salt to taste.

This is a great way to make asparagus I use green onions instead of a shallot. Turns out perfect every time!

A great new way to make asparagus. I use green onions instead of a shallot since I usually have them on hand.

This was very good. I'm kind of an asparagus purist but it didn't kill the flavor- nice and light.

Very very good. I've made this twice following the exact ingredients and the results were excellent both times. The first time I used asparagus and the second time I used fiddleheads. Very versatile recipe. Will totally make again and again.
