  • 2 bunches asparagus (2 pounds), trimmed
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup toasted hazelnuts (loose skins rubbed off), chopped


  1. Set a steamer basket in a saucepan with 2 inches simmering water. Add asparagus, cover, and steam until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a platter.

  2. Discard water and wipe pan dry. Heat butter over medium, swirling pan occasionally, until golden brown and most of the foam has subsided, 5 to 6 minutes. Pour over asparagus and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with hazelnuts, and serve immediately.
