Healthy Recipes: Asparagus with Curry Butter
A touch of curry-infused butter dresses sauteed asparagus. This quick and delicious side dish would be just as welcome with a grilled cheese sandwich as it would with broiled salmon.
4 servings, about 1/2 cup each
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 2 teaspoons butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon curry powder, (see Tip)

- 1 shallot, finely diced
- 1 bunch asparagus, (about 1 pound), trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
- Combine butter, curry powder, lemon juice and salt in a small bowl.

Tips & Notes
- Tip: Check the ingredient label on your brand of curry powder: if it has added salt (as some do), you may omit the salt in the recipe or salt to taste.
