I've recently been eating alot of asparagus and an easy way to cook asparagus is to fry it for about 5-6 minutes on a really high heat. There is no need to boil or steam asparagus. It tastes great fried over the hot pan! I fry the asparagus for about 6 minutes untill it browns slightly, then i prepare a dish with cooking foil and put about 3 table spoons of olive and 3 table spoons of balsamic vinegar onto the foil. I also add a little salt and pepper too. Once the asparagus is cooked, i transfer it to the dish and then tightly pack the asparagus into the foil (as if you were foiling up a baked potato. I then leave the asparagus to steam for about 3-4 minutes. I also like to turn it upside down so that the oil and vinger spread out and cover all the asparagus. Garnish with a little paramesan...Easy! And it tastes great!
