Spring has sprung and with it, new resolves. Clean the house, clean out the refrigerator, lose 30 pounds before swimsuit season... In that last vein, I have been cutting back on all the yummy stuff, like fat, sugar and salt and have been experimenting with cooking light. Here is a very yummy asparagus dish for starters.
cleaned and snapped asparagus spears (15-20)
2 T light soy sauce
2 T butter
1 t Worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the asparagus in a 13 x 9 pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake the asparagus for 12 minutes. In the mean time, melt the butter, add the soy sauce and worchester sauce and stir. Once the asparagus is done cooking, drizzle the sauce over, then shake to coat. Finally sprinkle with coarse salt to taste.
This dish is very simple, yet amazingly flavorful. Enjoy.
