Curried Asparagus

For a different taste try this asparagus

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon  olive oil
1/2  tablespoon yellow or red  curry paste
1/4 lbs asparagus, trimmed*, cut into 1″ diagonals
1/2 cup unsalted cashews, use salted if you want
1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
Snap asparagus so tender ends are left. Fish sauce can be quite salty, put only half amount in and add up to the 1/2 teaspoon or you can skip and just add some fresh ground celtic salt.

  1. Melt butter and oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add curry and stir until dissolved and fragrant.
  2. Add asparagus, cashews and Fish Sauce. Stirring, cook until tender crisp, about 5 minutes or more, depending on the thickness of stalks.
  3. Remove from heat and toss with lime juice. Serve immediately.
