Asparagus with Garlic-Parsley Butter Recipe

 

Ingredients

  • tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine butter, garlic, parsley, lemon zest, 1/4 tsp. salt and pepper in a food processor. Process until blended, stopping and scraping the sides as necessary. Use immediately or scrape butter onto plastic wrap, shape into a log and wrap tightly; store up to 1 week in the refrigerator or 2 months in the freezer.
  2. 2. Place asparagus in a large skillet so it lies flat. Add cold water to cover, plus a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain well, pat dry and transfer to a platter. Add some herbed butter and serve warm.
