Units Scale
  • 1 pound asparagus — the thinnest, newest asparagus you can find!
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 23 garlic cloves, sliced or diced
  • 1/2 lemon
  • salt and pepper


  1. Snap the ends off your asparagus where it wants to break naturally.
  2. Put the biggest skillet you’ve got over medium-high heat, and let it heat up for three or four minutes.
  3. Add the olive oil and garlic, slosh it around, then add your asparagus, in as close to a single layer as you can get.
  4. Sauté, turning everything over every minute or so, for just 3-5 minutes, or until the asparagus turns brilliantly green. Squeeze the lemon over it, salt and pepper, and toss it to coat, then serve immediately.
