Asparagus is so good it can be cooked very simply and served with a knob of butter and a squeeze of lemon to let the flavour sing. It's quick too!
knob of butter
lemon, cut into wedges
Sea salt + pepper to taste
Rinse the asparagus and trim the ends.
Put a pan of salted water on to boil, when boiling, turn down the heat and add the asparagus. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until you can easily prick the asparagus with a fork.
Drain and toss with the butter and a twist of salt and pepper.
Serve with the sea salt and lemon wedges.
