    total time: 25 mins
  • servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 5 shallots, halved and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed
  • Coarse salt
  • Ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 medium thick asparagus bunches, tough ends removed, cut on diagonal into 2-inch lengths (2 pounds total)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a large nonstick skillet with a lid, heat oil over medium. Add shallots and cook until they begin to color, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook, tossing occasionally, until mushrooms and shallots are tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Add lemon zest and tarragon; toss to combine.

  2. Step 2

    In the same skillet, bring 2 inches of water to a boil. Add asparagus, season with salt, cover, and cook until asparagus is bright green and tender, 3 to 4 minutes (timing will vary depending upon thickness of asparagus). Add peas to skillet, and then drain.

  3. Step 3

    Transfer to bowl with the shallots and mushrooms, add lemon juice, and toss to combine.
