As much as needed:




Browned butter

Snap tough ends from asparagus stems, try to have them close to the same length (save pieces from longer stems for another use).

In a very large skillet, bring salted water to a boil. Add single layer of asparagus stalks. Boil for exactly 90 seconds. Drain.

Place in serving dish. Spoon browned butter on top. Sprinkle with lemon zest.
