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

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