Lemon Butter Asparagus

Steamed Asparagus

1 bunch asparagus

1/4 cup butter

3 Tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon)

1 hard boiled egg

After prepping the asparagus, simply add to a shallow pan of water (I used a small skillet) and bring to boil then cook for about 5 minutes.

Using a metal strainer, push the egg through it to shred. 

Meanwhile melt 1/4 cup of butter in a microwave safe dish. To that, add approximately 3 Tablespoons of lemon juice & mix.

Once the asparagus is cooked, drain the water then drizzle the lemon butter sauce over top and sprinkle the eggs over top and garnish with paprika.
