Garlic lime steamed asparagus

Whether is is cold or hot outside, you can make this delicious side dish because we cook it in the skillet. It literally takes minutes to make to enjoy delicious asparagus.

If you are not a fan of asparagus it is because you ate it from a can or someone over cooked it. Trust me… I’ve overcooked mine many times and it is packed with flavor (and nutrients) if you don’t over cook it.

That is the key! You don’t want mushy asparagus. The asparagus should be bright green and tender but not mushy.

Give this a try and see how delicious it is.  If you prefer roasted asparagus, try this easy roasted asparagus recipe.

Tips for steamed asparagus:

If the asparagus isn’t still bright green then you have overcooked it. Once it becomes bright green stop cooking.

For this Garlic Steamed Asparagus recipe all you need is garlic salt, a fresh lime, some fresh asparagus, water and a skillet with a lid.

Now you don’t have to have a lime juicer but I highly recommend it. After years of doing it myself, I finally decided to get one – completely worth the investment.

They do a much better job than your hand can do. Amazon has several on sale here.
