I have always been good at sauteeing asparagus, but this is one of my favorite methods to create a sweet and traditional appetizer.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Cook asparagus in melted butter, stirring a few times, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Drizzle honey over the asparagus and stir to coat; season with garlic powder and cayenne pepper.

Cook's Notes:

If you find the asparagus sticks to the pan, you can add up to 1 tablespoon butter more while cooking.

For a healthier alternative, use 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil instead of butter.
