Ingredients

Directions

Pour about an inch of water into a large saucepan, and set up a collapsible steamer inside. Bring the water to boil, lay the asparagus in the steamer, cover, and steam until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer asparagus to a heated serving dish, drizzle with the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with lemon and serve immediately. 

Cook's Note

You may finish the asparagus with the grated zest of a small lemon, a tablespoon of unsalted butter, and a teaspoon of minced flat-leaf parsley leaves, instead of the oil.
