Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Trim about two thirds of the asparagus to get rid of any woody ends, then set aside. Peel the remaining into ribbons using a vegetable peeler and tip into a bowl.

  • STEP 2

    Gently heat the butter, lemon zest and juice and lots of black pepper in a small saucepan. Stir in half the parmesan and keep warm.

  • STEP 3

    Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the trimmed asparagus for about 2 mins until just cooked. Drain and tip into the bowl with the asparagus ribbons. Toss everything with the buttery sauce and the remaining parmesan. Season to taste, then serve.
