“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. ”


    • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
    • 1 teaspoon curry powder, (see Tip)
    • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
    • ¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 shallot, finely diced
    • 1 bunch asparagus, (about 1 pound), trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces


  • 1 Combine butter, curry powder, lemon juice and salt in a small bowl.
  • 2 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.
  • 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.
