Quick, easy, and delicious Pan Seared Asparagus with soy sauce and garlic takes only about 15 minutes to make, but is PACKED with amazing flavor.

Ingredients
 

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 bundle asparagus rinsed and trimmed
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons water

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook while stirring occasionally until it begins to turn golden brown, about 1 minute.
  • Add asparagus, soy sauce, and water to skillet. Roll asparagus to coat and cook evenly.
  • When asparagus is tender, but firm, remove from heat and serve immediately.

Notes

To trim asparagus, lay the stalks out on a cutting board with the woody ends aligned. Use a large kitchen knife to trim 1-2 inches from the bottom of the asparagus and discard the wooden ends. If you are unsure how much of the ends to trim off you can hold a single spear near the base and bend it gently until it naturally snaps, and use this amount as a guide to trim the rest.
If you have particularly thick asparagus spears with tough skin, you can peel the lower portion using a vegetable peeler to ensure optimal tenderness and texture.
Store leftover soy sauce asparagus in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

    Quick, easy, simple. It’s was good but if I had one critique…. The soy sauce over powered the flavour of the asparagus a bit to much. Would I make it again? Yes
