Ingredients
  

  • FOR THE SAUCE
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons pure organic maple syrup
  • Salt
  • Cracked pepper
  • FOR THE ASPARAGUS
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Salt
  • Cracked pepper

Instructions
 

  • Start by mixing the sauce ingredients until well blended and place in the refrigerator. That will allow the garlic oils to infuse the mixture.
  • Preheat a large cast iron skillet to medium high and allow the pan to become very hot.
  • Meanwhile, remove the tough bases of the asparagus, if necessary, then toss in the olive oil, salt and cracked pepper until all the spears are well coated.
  • Cook the asparagus in the hot skillet, spreading them in a single layer, if possible.
  • Leave the spears on one side long enough so that they develop a slight sear, then toss to sear the other side. Cook to preferred tenderness.
  • Remove from flame and serve hot drizzled with the maple mustard sauce.
