Tender Asparagus Spears with Garlic and Lemon Zest

Tender Garlic Asparagus with Lemon Zest

  • 1 14 ounce can range-fed chicken broth
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 10 garlic cloves peeled and diced
  • 1 ½ pound fresh asparagus spears, washed and trimmed
  • 2 Tablespoons of lemon zest
  • Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper


In a large skillet, bring to a boil the chicken broth, olive oil, and diced garlic. Add asparagus spears and bring to a boil once more. Reduce heat to medium and cover skillet. Cook until asparagus spears are tender but still crisp. Should not be more than 5 minutes. Remove asparagus with a slotted spoon and place on a serving plate. Increase heat and cook liquid and remaining garlic until thickened. Liquid should reduce to about ½ cup. Season with sea salt and ground pepper to personal taste. Pour over asparagus spears and sprinkle with zest of lemon.
