Perfectly cooked asparagus, every time.

Perfectly cooked asparagus, every time.

I struggled with cooking the perfect asparagus for so long. Without baking it or putting it on the pan, just the bright green just crunchy enough, just soft enough way they serve in restaurants.

Well, I finally figured out the perfect way to do it!

Step 1) Wash the asparagus and trim/snap off the ends

Step 2) Fill a big pot of water enough to cover all the stocks, put some Himalayan pink sea salt in there and bring water to a boil

Step 3) While you wait, get your ice bath ready! Get a colander set up in the sink to drain the hot water, and get another big bowl full of ice and cold water to quickly put your asparagus in there after it’s drained. Also get some tongs for grabbing the asparagus

Step 4) Once salt water comes to a strong boil, drop your asparagus in there

Step 5) Once the water comes to a strong boil again (with the asparagus in it) set a timer for 2 minutes

Step 6) After the 2 minutes is up, drain the asparagus in the colander and grab them with tongs to place them in the ice bath

Step 7) Let the asparagus sit in the ice bath for 1-2 minutes then drain them and enjoy!
