Pan-fried Asparagus

Our story

Whenever I see asparagus on sale at the grocery store, I always have to buy some. It is so delicious, especially when it is pan fried in garlic and butter. Asparagus is the perfect side dish. I especially like making it with steak and mashed potatoes, or salmon and rice. You can find these recipes on the blog if you want to make an entire meal.  

In order to keep your asparagus fresh in the fridge, put the ends in water. This will help the asparagus so it does not dry out. There are different ways you can prepare your asparagus. You can pan fry it or bake it. Sometimes I like to wrap it in bacon and then bake it in the oven.

  • Pan


  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp garlic
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper


  • Prepare your asparagus by washing it, and then trimming off the tough ends.
  • Heat a saucepan with butter on medium-high heat. Add asparagus, salt and pepper and toss to ensure that it is evenly coated. Cook for approximately 12 minutes, until the asparagus is tender and you are able to easily stick a fork through. Add garlic and fry for an additional 60 seconds.
  • Remove from heat, and toss in parmesan cheese.


You can tell if asparagus is fresh, if you are able to use your fingernail and easily puncture the stalk of the asparagus. 
Keep your asparagus fresh in your fridge, but keeping the ends in a bit of water. This will help keep the asparagus hydrated and last way longer!
