Asparagus with Curry Butter

A touch of curry-infused butter elevates this sautéed asparagus. The curry butter really enhances the tanginess of the asparagus and is a quick and easy side dish. I served it with Curry Roasted Chicken and Potatoes.

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Yields: 4 - 6 Servings


1Combine butter, curry powder, lemon juice and salt in a small bowl.

2Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add asparagus and cook, stirring, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir the curry butter into the asparagus; toss to coat.

3Tip: Check the ingredient label on your brand of curry powder: if it has added salt (as some do), you may omit the salt in the recipe or salt to taste.
