Cut the bottom 5cm off well-washed asparagus (or peel the skin), and slice diagonally.
Put butter and the asparagus in a pan and fry.
Add soy sauce, fry for a little longer and then remove from heat.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made a side dish for breakfast with asparagus, which was on sale.
If you have a non-stick pan, add butter before switching on the heat. If you are using an iron cast pan, add a little oil to the heated pan, add the asparagus and then the butter. This will prevent burning.
