   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   12      ounces        (approximately) medium asparagus
    1      tablespoon    extra virgin Spanish olive oil
                         Coarse salt -- to taste
 
 1. Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus spears. Peel the outer layer from
 the bottom half of each spear.
 
 2. Heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the
 asparagus and sauté until the asparagus is bright green and with just a tad of
 brown, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
 
 Notes:	When asparagus are first in season, prepare them the Spanish way—quickly
 sautéed in a fruity olive oil—for intense flavor.
