Think bold Caesar-salad flavors meet asparagus. This preparation will kick you in the taste buds with assertive garlic, spicy red pepper and rich, salty anchovy.


  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 bunches asparagus, tough ends trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons anchovy paste or 1 anchovy fillet, minced


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring constantly, until the garlic is fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the asparagus, water and anchovy; cook, stirring often, until the asparagus is tender-crisp, 5

to 6 minutes.
