Asparagus is one of the most nutritionally well-balanced vegetables in existence. Its array of nutrients, fiber and very low sodium and calorie content make asparagus a nutritionally wise choice.


1-pound fresh thin asparagus, trim by breaking off the thick end of each spear

4 Tablespoons butter or substitute (I used parkay, it has 0 calories)

1-Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 garlic cloves, pressed

Zest & Juice of 1 lemon

Pinch of Sea salt

1 Teaspoon Tiger blast lemon pepper blend

Grated parmesan cheese, for topping


  1. In a large skillet, heat the butter, olive oil, and lemon zest over medium heat whisk in the lemon juice.
  2. Add the garlic, salt, and tiger blast lemon pepper blend and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the asparagus and cook for 3 minutes, tossing to coat evenly.
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy.
