SERVINGS & SCALING
Original recipe yield: Serves 2, as a side dish
1 packet of asparagus, rough ends trimmed (approximately 300 gms)
Olive oil, as needed
Italian herbs (optional)
4 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
Lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
Pepper, to taste
Sea salt, to taste
2. Drizzle lemon juice over the asparagus. Serve hot!
Note: Use thicker asparagus shoots if they are available to you. It's easier to prevent them from overcooking.
Be careful not to get the garlic burnt. This dish is supposed to be subtle, to replicate what it's like baking the asparagus in an oven. However, with such thin asparagus shoots, it's best to cook them over a pan to prevent them from overcooking.
