Asparagus is here! I long for this time of year every single year. I cannot wait to add it to everything.

First off, if you buy a lot of asparagus, make sure you know how to store it. My quick storage tips for asparagus will keep it fresh for weeks. You don't want it going bad.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Parmesan cheese


Heat oil in large skillet.

When oil shimmers, add in asparagus, salt, and papper. Stirring frequently.

After a few minutes, add in lemon juice, garlic, and lemon zest. Cook for a minute.

Checking that asparagus is cooked and tender, remove from heat. Transfer to platter and top with shaved Parmesan cheese.
