Fresh Steamed Asparagus

cajuncookingtv's picture
Asparagus is often referred to as a delicacy and can be enjoyed as fresh steamed asparagus with grilled steaks and grill pork tenderloins. Asparagus comes in a variety of colors such as green, white and purple. When purchasing asparagus, look for them to be displayed standing up in shallow water. The stems should be moist and firm.
  Fresh asparagus 2
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Sea salt To Taste
  Creole seasoning To Taste
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)

Thoroughly rinse fresh asparagus in cold water leaving the bottom rubber band on. Asparagus can be sandy or gritty, so important to carefully rinse.

On a cutting board, cut the bottom 2-3 inches off the asparagus. Keeping the rubber band on helps to keep the ends from flying all over the place when you cut them off.

In a deep skillet, pour in one cup water and bring to a boil.

Place the asparagus in the skillet - spread out all in the same direction.

Place a few pats of butter over the shoots. Sprinkle a dash of Sea Salt and Tony’s Creole Seasoning. Lower the heat to medium-low (#3 or #4).

Cook about 5-7 minutes.
