Spring Asparagus with Shallots
Recipe courtesy of Jacques Pépin's Fast Food My Way
Cut asparagus stalks on the bias into 2-inch pieces.
Heat the oil in a large skillet or saucepan over medium heat. Add the asparagus and shallots and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, until the asparagus is just tender. Stir in the butter, salt, and pepper and toss to mix. Serve immediately.
Note: this pairs perfectly with grilled meats.
