can either boil til "al tente" or fry in a pan until the same. i prefer pan fried because they keep their flavour xxx HTH

Steam for a few mins depending on thickness of asparagus then serve with sea salt and melted butter or Hollandaise sauce or can poach in pan but be careful not to overcook tender tips. Some recommend an asparagus steamer which protects the tips whilst cooking the tougher stems. Lucky Dh! Enjoy!

def steam, but not for long so they stay firm. If you cant face or dont have time to do a sauce they are nice with a touch of mayo. Hope the meal goes well!
