Servings: 4 servings
- 1 pound asparagus cleaned and trimmed (see blog notes)
- 1/2 lemon
- 2 cloves garlic sliced thin
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Trim and wash the asparagus. See blog notes for detailed instructions on how to do this.
Put the trimmed and washed asparagus into a skillet. Add enough water to barely cover the bottom of the skillet, and add 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 cloves of thinly sliced garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Turn the heat on high and cook the asparagus, turning it frequently, to cook. When the water has evaporated, turn the heat down and put the lemon, flesh side down, into the skillet to caramelize.
Cook for an addition 1-2 minutes or until the asparagus is crisp-tender and the lemon is golden brown on the flesh side.
Serve with a squeeze of the lemon.
