Asparagus Sautéed with Mastiha-Butter

INGREDIENTS 4 PORTIONS
  • 2-3 tbsp. butter

  • ½ tsp. Mastiha powder

  • 1 pound (1/2 kilo) asparagus (medium-sized)

  • Coarse sea salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • A few drops of lemon juice

  • 1 tsp. parsley, finely chopped

PREPARATION
  1. Cut away the thick, tough bottoms of the asparagus and trim the stalks lightly with a vegetable peeler.

  2. In a heavy skillet over medium-high heat melt the butter and add the Mastiha powder and the asparagus. Toss the skillet a bit to arrange the asparagus in one layer. Raise the heat for 1-2 minutes, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Reduce heat and cook the asparagus for 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned on all sides. Drizzle with a few drops of lemon, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
