In this quick and easy method for basic pan-roasted asparagus, an initial blast over high heat gives the spears a light char to develop sweet, nutty flavor, then covered cooking with a little water renders the spears perfectly crisp-tender. Serve the asparagus unadorned straight from the pan, or add any one of the following embellishments to dress it up. You will need a 12-inch skillet with a lid for this recipe.




Don't use extra-thick asparagus, as it requires longer cooking. Look for spears that are no larger than ½ inch in diameter. But don't use ultra-thin asparagus, either, which will end up overdone.
