By sexyswamprat

  • 2 pounds (960 g)asparagus

  • olive oil cooking spray

  • 1/2 cup (45 g) chopped scallions

  • 2 tablespoons (30 g) minced fresh ginger

  • 3 cloves garlic minced

  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) water

  • grated zest of 2 lemons

  • freshly grated pepper

  1. Break off the ends of the asparagus spears and discard. Peal asparagus only if the spears are thick. Cut the spears into 3 inch pieces and set aside.

  2. Spray a skillet with cooking spray. Sauté the scallions for 3 minutes until wilted. Add the ginger and garlic and sauté for 2 more minutes.

  3. Add the water and asparagus; bring to a boil. Boil for about 4 minutes until crisp cooked and most of the waiter has evaporated. Using a slotted spoon transfer the asparagus to a serving plate and toss with grated lemon rind and pepper.
