Asparagus Quick Fry

This is a simple recipe ready in no time at all. The trick is to not overcook the asparagus. You should still feel the crunch when you bite into it. I like to serve this with a pasta dish. This recipe is super quick and I would suggest to not cook it until you are ready to serve or eat. It is best eaten and enjoyed when done fresh @sarchakra
