Asparagus Almandine recipe

Something magical happens when asparagus meets almonds and lemon. Crispy nuts, tart citrus, and soft asparagus combine to make a taste sensation. This side dish is elegant for any entertaining party, but easy enough to make for any ordinary meal.

Ingredients:

2 pounds fresh asparagus
¼ cup butter
¼ cup slivered almonds
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook until color turns bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove, rinse under cold water, and drain. Set aside.

  2. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add almonds and cook until lightly browned and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and cook until liquid reduces and becomes cohesive, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and pour over reserved asparagus. Serve immediately.
