Microwave Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce

SERVES
2 to 4
COOK TIME
6 Min

Sometimes the simplest things are the best. And what better than fancy asparagus drizzled with homemade hollandaise sauce to prove that?

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

What to Do

  1. Place the asparagus (tips toward center) in a microwave-safe 7 x 11 baking dish. Add the water and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and microwave at 90% power for 5 minutes; remove and set aside.
  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat the butter at 90% power for 40 seconds, until melted. In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks, lemon juice, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt until thick. Slowly pour in the melted butter, whisking well. Microwave uncovered at 40% power for 30 seconds, stirring halfway through the cooking time.
  3. Uncover the asparagus; drain, and place on a serving platter. Drizzle with the hollandaise sauce and serve immediately.

Notes

Freshen up wilted asparagus tips by soaking them in cold water before cooking.

Weeknight Shrimp Fried Rice

Just because we have our weeknight routines, well, that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Sure, there are a lot of delicious shrimp fried rice recipes out there, but the secret that makes ours stand apart is chilling the rice before we cook it. It makes the fried rice lighter, and it won't get mushy later on. .
