Asparagus with Spicy Nutmeg Butter
• Low Calorie • Low Carbohydrates
1 1/2 pounds medium asparagus spears (about 30 spears)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Garlic Salt
1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Nutmeg, Ground
1/8 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Red Pepper, Ground Cayenne
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted (optional)
1. Wash asparagus and break off stalks as far down as they snap easily, about 1 to 2 inches from ends. Arrange asparagus in single layer on large rimmed baking pan lined with foil. Drizzle asparagus with oil and roll to coat.
2. Broil asparagus 4 to 6 minutes or until tender-crisp, turning once. Place in a serving dish.
3. Stir garlic salt, nutmeg and red pepper into melted butter. Pour over asparagus. Garnish with pine nuts, if desired.
Test Kitchen Tip: Asparagus may also be roasted in the oven. Roast in preheated 425°F oven 10 minutes or until tender-crisp.
