Asparagus is best steamed or cooked in a big pot of boiling water. As soon as it is cooked, toss it in a bowl to dry it slightly and then add cold butter and keep tossing to coat it. Whatever you do, don’t heat the butter and asparagus in a sauté pan or the butter will turn oily. You can also just put a little butter or sauce on the asparagus as described in the recipe.
