  • 1 garlic clove thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup coarsely grated Parmesan or Parmesan shavings
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1 lbs Asparagus
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice Freshly Squeezed
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper


  • In a medium skillet or frying pan set over medium-low, heat Olive Oil, add sliced garlic and saute until lightly browned. Be careful not to burn it. Transfer garlic to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
  • Add the butter to the pan and increase the temperature to medium. Add asparagus to the pan, cover and cook for about 5 minutes (3 min for thin, 5 minutes for thick asparagus).
  • Take off the lid, increase temp to medium-high and fry until lightly browned about 3 minutes. Test for the desired doneness by lifting out a stalk and taste it.
  • Transfer the asparagus to a serving dish, sprinkle over the roasted garlic and season with the lime juice, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine and top with parmesan shavings just before serving.
